Would that it were only this bad.

I'm cranky today so I'll share this gem.

AOL's browser for Windows has a remarkable property.  If you ever visit
a URL that contains an internal anchor,  	
(e.g. http://foobar.com/document.html#internal-anchor),  the browser will
*remember* the string "#internal-anchor", and append it to all
subsequent form data for POSTs. Visit another internal anchor, and it
will be appended to the first.  Ha! It's really cute.  Time to
litter that CGI code with even more weird browser-dependent kluges.
