Netscape spells it "Referer".

Webster's insists it's Referrer not Referer....

The World-Wide Web Common Code Library version 2.16pre2
produces "Referer"

also spelled wrong

NASA spells it "Referrer", and so does Netcape's JavaScript in their
"URL" library.

"IE: referrer - reflects the URL of the calling document "
