Thank you very much for your fast response. However, it did not work. I set up 
a small test case: You may try http://rw7.de/ralf/favicon.ico . This URL 
should return a "410 Gone" error. I built in two links to


which I think contains a typo, and 


which I think corrects that typo. Both links do not work. Accually that 
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=referer performs a redirection with the 
"referer" replaced by the actual referer URL. On this redirection, the 
"&No200=1" (and probably all other parameters) get lost.

Furthermore, I added a link with a "&verbose=1" attached, and that parameter 
gets lost too.

Best regards,
Ralf Wiebicke.
