( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

NB: Something similar to this appears to have been discussed in Refreshing the Current Node, and valdez apparently submitted a patch that apparently implements what I'm talking about.

A minor problem - when I've voted on a node, I get taken to index.pl without a node_id=123456. This means that to reload the current node (to check for new replies, for instance), I have to go back to e.g. The Monastery Gates, then navigate to the node again.

A proposed solution: include a link to the current node (by node_id) in the (print, w/ replies, xml) group at the top of each node. I believe that changing the "action" method for the vote! button to "index.pl?node_id=xxxxxx" rather than "index.pl" would allow you to click in your browser's address/location bar, then hit "enter". I believe that would work because HTTP POST would override the GET when voting, but that would appear to be a nasty hack to me, and it may not work across browsers.

It's not easy to juggle a pregnant wife and a troubled child, but somehow I managed to fit in eight hours of TV a day.
