Refreshing the Current Node

I don't know if this has been said/asked already .. apologies if so, my Super Search didn't turn it up.

A long time ago, I remember there being a number of discussions about mechanisms for refreshing the current node after, say, a form post.

I've recently found that it's possible to create a link in the Free Nodelet that allows you to do this:

[`id`|Refresh Node]
I'm interested to know why this works.. using `id` like this doesn't strike me as at all obvious. I presume it's something to do with the templating of the site? Are there any other of these "variables" available?

    Read the gods own words on how the templating system for the Free Nodelet works.

    That's cool, but not necessary. At the top of all normal nodes, just under the title, is a line that includes a link to the current node. For example, at the top of your post, you should see (among other things)

    #476426=monkdiscuss
    It really couldn't be any more convenient.
