Hi Hans

Unless I don't understand intermaps (very possible!), they will not work 
for my purposes. I thought an intermap would convert a short phrase on a 
Pmwiki page into a URL "prefix".

I want to be able to email somebody a URL like:


and when they click it, have them directed to:


or have:


expand to:


It doesn't need to be part of Pmwiki. It could be a standalone script 
accessed by a URL like:


But having it as part of Pmwiki would make maintaining the links easier. 
Mind you, I suppose a standalone script could read a page or table 
created by Pmwiki.

I am going to stop rambling now ...  ;-)
