But my question is why you want to hide the values? Any marginally
web-literate user is going to be able to get the value either via a view
source or by right clicking and looking at the properties. You can, of
Is the concern somebody forwarding the links to others? Or saving them as
favorites? If so, method=post will render the URL that is forwarded/saved as
not usable. But with sessions, as soon as the session expires, the URL is
not usable anyway.
Asthetics (as Jack says) is a valid reason. If you can provide some detail
about what problem you are trying to solve or why you want to do this,
perhaps we could be of more help.
