If you've been following the conversation morfeus and I have been having, you know we're looking for a non-confusing positive log off function for CGI Reporters to use.
"Non-confusing" means two things: (1) It should _not_ present the login dialog again; and (2) the software should be persuaded to 'forget' the Reporter's screen name.
I think I've found a way to satisfy condition (1). I'll get the wired up sometime soon, and we'll see how it goes.
One problem with all this is that different browsers behave differently, particularly the one browser that has the largest market share. That browser and the company back of it of have a long history of ignoring "standards" the rest of Internet may already be using. Consequently programmers have often had to include code in their scripts to do different things, depending on which browser they're having a conversation with.
That may turn out to be a factor here. The working log out method employs a bit of workaround magic to get the job done. We'll just have to see if different browsers will allow for that bit of magic to take place.
