Hi all,
I have a problem with REFERER when i'm using the form tag like this
<form name="MyForm" method="POST" action="Some.jsp" target="_blank">
<input type="submit">
Now in the Some.jsp i want the referer which i'm getting for the first time,
but not after that.
It goes like this--
The above form tag i'm having in many pages say one.html, two.html, ...
Now when i open one.html and click the submit button and read referer in Some.jsp,
i'm getting the correct value. But after that if i change the url to two.html and
do the same i'm getting the referer as "Some.jsp".
Another unusual thing happening is if i change the url from one.html to two.html
then the request is going as POST instead of GET
This problem doesn't occurs if i remove the target attribute from the FORM tag.
Is this a problem with target attribute. The same is working fine with Netscape 4.0 and 4.5,
IE 5.5. This problem is with IE 5.0
With Netscape 6.0 it is a different problem, the form is going to the server twice,
first as POST and second as GET.

Any idea.
Thanks in advance
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
