Hi Tom,

Funny you should mention this, maybe two weeks ago I faced this exact same
problem. Don't you love mailing lists? ;)

Anyway, now I can't find the site that had what I was looking at, but a
quick search on google ("javascript querystring library") returned this as
the first hit:


It's essentially an API for accessing the querystring. Their example shows
it best:

	URL:  http://www.about.com/default.htm?search=test&results=15
	QueryString( "search" ) returns "test"
	QueryString( "results" ) returns "15"

Actually, it looks a lot nicer than the one I downloaded and tinkered with
