Re: [EXT] bug repport about tilde removal in referer

Hello Philip!

Thanks for your e-mail! I should probably clarify this issue.

It claims to validate … but it "validates" some other code. Indeed, it says: "HTML 4.01 Transitional", despite of the fact that is valid "-//W3C//DTD XHTML+RDFa 1.1//EN". What is valid "HTML 4.01 Transitional" is which is rather different. This is also obvious if you check the URI at the top of your browser window, which says and not as it should if it would keep the referer intact.

The problem is that the part of the referer after the first slash following the domain name is pruned away.
