Ive got IE behind a proxy (Squid) right here (standard BBC desktop build is IE8, Active Directory, no routable Internet access so everything goes through an HTTP or SOCKS proxy)  does it always happen when IE is behind a proxy and it's just the case that my proxy is filtering it out behind forwarding, or is it only certain kinds of proxy? or am I misunderstanding?

Mo,

Here is one reference to this IE6 anomaly: 
http://jamespreston.co.uk/Articles/RedirectingIE6ToUrlWithFragmentIdentifier.html 
.

Remember, I said, this is why DBpedia ended up using slash URIs since 
the goal what for DBpedia to "just work" re. Linked Data exploitation 
from any browser.

When Peter indicates being able to send URIs with Fragment Identifiers 
over-the-wire, I am assuming some variation of this issue still existing 
within Windows.

As per earlier mail today, if Peter has control over what cross the 
wire, the shouldn't send the Fragment Identifier part of the URI across 
the wire. If he can't help doing that (due to the framework in use) then 
he's left to the mercies of a Linked Data Sever to handle this.

Note, its now clear to me that Peter was attempting to implement a WebID 
verifier, and this modality sets him up for being responsible for URI 
de-reference and associated nuances re. Linked Data.
