Subject:   Two Common Issues and Fixes

I've gotten a bunch of emails about two common issues; they are easy to fix:


* The Really Simple History library ONLY works if loaded from http:// URLs, and NOT file:// URLs. This means you must set up a local HTTP server, such as Tomcat or Apache, for your testing. This happens because browsers have bugs in their file:// URL handlers that break history.
* For Internet Explorer, you MUST have the file blank.html in the same directory as the HTML page you load the RSH library in. This file is needed by the hidden iframe.


Best,
