It should be fairly obvious
to anyone who looks at their URL
occasionally, but you can easily link to an arbitary node with the format:
This can be used to link to everything
, your webpage
, and other places.
It should be noted that if the node title includes unusual characters, these characters should be escaped with %xx codes where xx is the hex code for the ASCII character you want.
This is similar to the
format used for Napster URLs.
Other interesting CGI parameters include &lastnode_id=xxxxxx which is what keeps track of your movements from node to node, softlinking quietly behind you, and the &op=xxx which does many wonderful things such as logging you out (logout) and creating new nodes (new).
