Hi All

I used to be a habitual POST coder, to protect clients from confusing URIs but...

1) When generating pages from form data, I can see an obvious accessibility plus 
for the GET method - one can bookmark the resulting page.

2) I have also found that GET produced pages make markup/style validation and 
access by accessibility checkers much more convenient.

 From an accessibilty standpoint, should we really use POST at all?
