Funny thing is that this sensible suggestion just makes things worse. 
I'd like to have a nosey around my ISP's httpd.conf file, 
specifically around the area where extensions are mapped to the php 
parser, but I think I can guess what they'd say if I asked. :)

I've sorted out a rather nice php-based url-rewriting scheme -- which 
is working like a dream -- but inserting the results dynamically into 
the javascript variables seems to be screwing up the linked script. 
The problem could very easily be related to echoing ' marks into 
javascript strings. It's a bit hard to tell exactly what's choking 
what without spending more time investigating. I'll have to have 
another look tomorrow morning.

Thanks a lot for all your suggestions evolters!
