nice :)

well you can still use it and in a lot of cases its needed, you've just got to remember to wrap it in htmlentities to cover your arse.

much of the $_SERVER superglobal can be spoofed anyway so one more wont hurt.

it's just the a case of looping through the $_SERVER superglobal and running each entry through urldecode() and then htmlentities().

This is a 'flaw' with PHP, thus it is a problem across all platforms and webservers.

jonno - using urldecode on input is a very touchy subject, as pointed out in one of the comments on the Reserved Variables page on php.net :)
