i think 2 is how it should be,
anyhow another intersting one:
- blah.hts?userID=123456&section=5

in the previous example, netscape3 and explorer 4 will render '&sect' (no
closing ';') in the second name/value pair as the html entity '&sect;'

you can work around thnx to the case sensitivity of entities ('&Section=')


;)

# 
# 
# Greetings,
# 
# I was surprised that I could not find a specification within 
# the HTML RFC's
# for what to do when you have a fragment identifier AND a 
# querystring.  For
# example, which would be correct?:
# 
# 1) mypage.asp?myvar=value#myfragment
# 
# or
# 
# 2) mypage.asp#myfragment?myvar=value
# 
# To me, the second seems more intuitive, but fails in Internet 
# Explorer.
# Only the first works in I.E. and Netscape.  Have I overlooked some
# documentation on this?
