Good point.  :-)


It is possible code all links to call _javascript_ to submit forms.  Therefore, each link would require it's own form, and each link would in effect be a POST and not a GET.  Hovering the mouse over a link would not show the URL in the bubble or status bar.

Also a good point.  :-)


It might be possible to encode the URL's in the forms in some way to hide the values, but they could still be decoded by a determined person.
