[FX.php List] FX Repost

In general it is good practice to only use POST requests when records  
will be modified by the request.  Otherwise GET requests should be  
used.  To avoid the case where a POST request is used to return a  
result set, I will generally always use GET requests to display  
information, and have scripts that use POST to modify information  
simply forward (i.e. header('Location: /path/to/results.php') ) to  
the GET request to show the results.  With this approach, repost  
becomes a non-issue.

Best regards
