Really? The tip doesn't explicitly mention 303 redirects, but still...

10.3.4 303 See Other

The response to the request can be found under a different URI and  
SHOULD be retrieved using a GET method on that resource. This method  
exists primarily to allow the output of a POST-activated script to  
redirect the user agent to a selected resource. The new URI is not a  
substitute reference for the originally requested resource.

... however, as far as I know, pretty much all user agents treat 302  
and 301 redirects as if they were 303 as far as converting to a GET  
request is concerned.
