How crazy can it get: IE does not set the Referer field if the page was built via client-side XSLT

Some of my web sites rely on client-side XSLT transformations, triggered with the <?xml-stylesheet > processing instruction in the XML document sent by the server. A long time ago I've noticed that some of the utility functions perform differently in IE than in Firefox and finally decided to figure out what's going on. The results are "fascinating": when you click on a link in a page generated with client-side XSLT transformation, IE does not set the Referer: field in the HTTP request. I can only congratulate the coders ... you have an amazing mindset ... not to mention the QA department.
