If you're redirecting the whole page, then a within-page redirect should not be necessary because no request will ever reach the page.
On the other hand: servers are non-living objects. That means they are capable of malice toward humans. So why not cover yourself by coding for a redirect both ways?

The querystring is parsed by the page.asp so redirecting that page should be sufficient.
Curious: if you are using ASP without IIS what server are you using?

Hello Lucy24 and dstiles,
thankyou for your prompt replies, dstiles we are on an IIS server (I got that completely wrong).

> IIS server
Shame. I'm trying to find a non-IIS server that runs ASP on linux. Thought you might have a solution. :(

You can run asp.net on with mono on a linux server, but that's a bad, bad, bad idea. Asp.net is great to develop in, but it's really sensitive to anything being wonky with it's environment. If you can shell out $7 a month, databasemart is a good solution to get a .net site.

There are a couple of solutions for running .NET sites under linux but none for Classic ASP.
None of my web sites are .NET and never will be. If MS force the issue I would rather recode everything for linux.

I was a hard core MS hater/php guy for years until I was forced to use .net for a new job. After actually doing both for a few years, I can tell you that for about 90% of all development projects, and experienced .net developer will build much faster than an experienced PHP developer. The only things I don't feel it's applicable to are projects that would be along the scale of facebook or amazon. Things like that.
