Thanks for the patch.

I integrated it into the current script, and have it running on
my test server:

It's not committed to CVS yet, but here is the current code
(on the test server):

Almost all of my test cases seem to work:

except this syntax doesn't seem to be supported by;ss;sp;outline

and I'm not sure how to fix that.

At first I thought it was my use of semicolons instead of ampersands
between the CGI parameters, but that's not it; splits on
either '&' or ';' . This doesn't work either:

It wants '=' after the parameters, or else they don't get defined.
This works:

Any ideas how to support the old syntax as well?
