Oooh! Looking at those URLs, it is safe for me to generalize? In particular, are those CGI options applicable to any type:XXX filter?
. This is the kind of stuff I was referring to in a recent e-mail.
Yes, this reminded me of your e-mail, which I need to get back to. I think your idea is a good one, but we need to get input from the Dev team to know what the options are (and which ones don't work in some cases) in order to build an appropriate form. It should be doable in pure HTML (no scripting) using the GET method. Once we have something functional, maybe we can push it back to I'bles for inclusion in the "title bars" of the various category displays.
. Feel free to use the JSFI BBS for collaborating. I can set up a separate area for your project, if need be.
