I know Google will, but does anyone know if yahoo will obey wildcard matching in robots?

Current code:
Disallow: *?widgetType=*

Will this work?

Thanks.

Ok, thanks, looks like MSN too. What I needed, thanks.

By the way, I updated my code to

/*widgetType=

seems to be what I need. Thanks.

Yes, you never need a trailing * in robots.txt, because patterns match from the left anyway.
