Quite a lot seem to judging by my personal web server's refer logs; the page number is included in the "referring URI". People quite often look at several pages on my site for the same search, and disturbingly often then browse around for a few minutes, coming back later on with another match for the same search, or a slightly different search. I wish I could ask those people exactly what they were looking for, although one of the most common queries that I get hits for (with pictures of ruined castles mostly) is simply pictures where I suspect someone was bored :-) Liam PS: the pictures of ruined castles (and other engravings and woodcuts from old books) are at http://www.holoweb.net/~liam/pictures/oldbooks/ in case you're wondering! Coming shortly is an XML Query-powered interface to search by keyword & depicted location. -- Liam Quin, W3C XML Activity Lead, http://www.w3.org/People/Quin/ http://www.holoweb.net/~liam/
