 *  If for the browser , URL is :
 *    http://server/htbin/script/pathname
 *  With ISINDEX the URL is always "http://server/htbin/script/pathname?aaa"

Not necessarily... when someone accesses an ISINDEX script without any query
data the URL looks like http://server/htbin/script/pathname.

The safe way to do this, which is how the spec has been updated, is to
search for an = sign in the query data since form requests if they have any
query info must have this character somewhere.
