Should the javascript paging be killed

Kill it. Use parameters in the URL. Damn the consequences!

I love javascript Let's keep it how it is! It is faster that way! Or possibly I don't like change. Or maybe I am scared it will break everything and pau1ie will leave the country with his ill gotten gains, and we will never get back to the present utopia.

Paging in bbcmicro.co.uk

See the following post for background. I read a tutorial that said it would be much quicker to page through the website if you used partial page reloads. This means only the centre part of the page is reloaded when you click on a number, not the whole page like in the old days. So I did that.

I believe the website still works in non-javascript mode, using the page parameter (e.g. append &page=10 to the URL). This would reload the whole page, so is likely to change some stuff in the site. So, do you want to change it to work without Javascript and risk the changes, or leave it as it is.
