You really do seem to be missing the point; earlier respondents have
not suggested that your parameter list may not have any of the above;
they have tried to point out that your mistake is in believing that
you can use an unescaped ampersand to separate your parameters.  In

	...t/cgi-bin/webring.cgi?Ring=428&Id=8&Aktion=Back"

the problem lies solely with the unescaped ampersand; re-write
the above as

	...t/cgi-bin/webring.cgi?Ring=428&amp;Id=8&amp;Aktion=Back"

and all will be well.
