why not put it at the end?



- if it gets wrapped, and someone clicks on the first 72 chars only 
(lopping off the end of the title) the link will still work.

- it's shorter to tack .cfm on the end of the title, rather than /index.cfm

- if people want to save the articles to disk, they'll get a nicer filename 

are there technical reasons why it can't work this way?
