what issue?  =P


: I just think this is quite annoying behavior from
: a user's perspective.

how many articles of all the articles actually have internal anchors?  my
personal feeling is that there aren't enough articles to warrant the
concern.  furthermore, if an article is so big that it needs internal
anchors, maybe it needs to be broken up.

: How's about altering the keyphrase functionality
: to redirect to the "real" url scheme rather than
: having that URL in the browser's address bar?
: That's what dan's old_scheme->new_scheme script
: does, doesn't it? Would you be keen on that? If
: so, let's use the same [www.]evolt.org format
: that dan is using on his script.

i'm fine doing a redirect, but that means two hits to the server to serve an
article with a keyphrase link to it.  not an optimal solution.

what format would that be?

: I'd like to eliminate this issue... but it doesnt'
: look like we can do that.  So, the next best thing
: is to narrow it down to only two possible URLs (in
: the address bar) for a single article (the www. and
: the non-www. SSURL format).

that's already a non-issue, internal anchors can be coded with a leading
slash and no protocol or domain name.


make sense?
