Hi Guys,

Okay the page source for that portion is:

<div class="paragraph Summary_Body" style="line-height: 17px; margin- 
bottom: 0px; margin-top: 0px; text-indent: 0px; "><span style="color:  
#707070; font-family: 'Georgia', 'serif'; font-size: 12px; font- 
style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; letter- 
spacing: 0; line-height: 17px; opacity: 1.00; text-decoration: none;  
text-transform: none; " class="Bullet">(4)</span><span style="line- 
height: 17px; "> </span><a href="https://agschedule.ncsa.uiuc.edu:443/ 
default.asp" title="https://agschedule.ncsa.uiuc.edu:443/default.asp"  
style="line-height: 17px; ">NCSA AGSchedule</a><span style="line- 
height: 17px; "> (Showcase: </span><a href="http:// 
agschedule.ncsa.uiuc.edu/viewday.asp?date=11/14/2006" title="http://

style="line-height: 17px; ">, </span><a href="http:// 
agschedule.ncsa.uiuc.edu/viewday.asp?date=11/16/2006" title="http://

The source is clean and has the right ? in the right place. Except  
that I think the vbscript code on agschedule "thinks" that the link  
is actually the whole string (http://agschedule.ncsa.uiuc.edu/ 
viewday.asp?date=11/15/2006) and if you haven't been to agschedule  
before (ie: no timezone stuff setup) it tries to append ? 
tzoffset=-240&tz=11 to what's already in the browsers address field  
(http://agschedule.ncsa.uiuc.edu/viewday.asp?date=11/15/2006) resulting
tzoffset=-240&tz=11) which is definitely wrong.

Mike I think you might have to add something to the vbscript that  
checks the incoming URL for ? and if it finds something like that in  
the string rewrites the URL to the default (front page) to allow the  
user to obtain the timezone cookie stuff or something like that......
