Hi Julian:
HTML5 introduces new operations: |history.pushState()| and |history.replaceState()
which can be used to manage the browser history.  These do not require JS and
they do not cause a page reload.

Reading Syd's mail I am not sure we are talking about the same thing when we
say "history"

Please read the paper: |http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/2011/01/HashInURI-20110331 <http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/2010/12/HashInURI-20110115>
Appreciate all comments|

All the best, Ashok
