Description Terje Bless 2002-10-26 20:01:26 UTC
If you call the check script with a trailing slash [...] all relative
links stop working, e.g. the link to the style sheet referenced in the
result page. The script should redirect to /check without a trailing slash.

Hmmm. Anything in PATH_INFO will throw off browsers.
Comment 2 Terje Bless 2002-10-27 11:05:13 UTC
Fixed. We now redirect to /check if there is gunk in PATH_INFO that does not
match "/referer".
