Subject Re: are refs allowed in HTTP POST URIs?

Refs are never part of HTTP requests. They are purely client-side, since
they point _into_ a document. The HTTP request will always be for the
whole document. Once the document is on the client, the application
can then look for the part of the document indicated by the reference.

hope that helps,
