In using query strings to pass info around I am having problems with this. If you type straight to a folder say url/news/ the default document(default.asp) returns. What I am doing with my href is setting them to url/news/?id=page&pid=5 it successfully passes the string into the page on W2K IIS 5.0 but it is not pulling up in IIS 4.0(you have to set them to the full document path url/news/default.asp?id=page&pid=5)....just curious if this might be something else that is turned off....or is this just a IIS 5.0 specific trait.
