Subject Re: img tag with action as src
Date Fri, 06 Feb 2004 23:16:37 GMT
Well, Mr. Greg Bloomquist, Ben Anderson is not correct on that point, if 
you cite him correctly.  You can use the "src" attribute fine.  I do it all 
the time.  I explore this more below.  You said:

This is not correct.  My original response is correct.  The use of .do is 
the important thing and that will take the request to the controller for 
processing.  So, you are not seeing what the problem is.  You seem a bit 
put out about my answer and expect me to spend my time monitoring all your 
messages, apparently, so as not to hurt your feelings or something.  I 
cannot promise that kind of dedication to you, I would still be happy to 
help you get this right, if you would like.  Just so you don't think this 
is merely arrogance, you can go to, look at the src 
attribute on the opening page under the "source" obtained from "View" in 
your browser, if you are using Internet Explorer for direct proof that your 
conclusions are mistaken.  Notice that I use .MICHAELMcGRADY instead of .do.

Okay?  Peace, shalom, namaste, handshake?  LOL  Relax a little man.  Try 
going wooooo, woooooo, woooooooo, a bit.

Remember that URLs are just file finding devices and that when you use .do, 
the URL part of that device is rendered essentially irrelevant.  I am quite 
serious that I would like to help you and quite serious that you need to 
chill a bit.
