Good point. But some feedback here. The optimail syntax is:
// process form
// redirect to results page
header('Status: 303 See Other' );
Using "Status:" in the header is better because the resulting headers from
Apache are more correct:
HTTP/1.1 303 See Other
Additionally, one doesn't really know which version of HTTP is being used,
so why potentially cause problems by trying to guess.
The specs say location headers must have a complete URI in them, not just
Lastly, you don't want any output after the location header.
