Referer use
Sat, 9 Jul 1994 02:31:56 +0200

I've got a custom-made feedback form in which I would like to determine
automatically what page the user was on before they selected a link to take
them to the feedback form. The description of Referer sounded like it would
do this, but apparently I misunderstand the semantics.

The spec on the CERN Web server says the Referer header is "the address of
the document from which the URI in the request was obtained." However, it
appears that I'm getting the current URL. Is anyone else using the Referer
header in the sense I want to use it above?
