    Thanks for sharing! Hard to say if I agree with the browser's behavior or not. I know I commonly code: <form action=""> to reference itself. But that does not involve external assets.... read more »

    Thank you for this. "For starters, is it worth it?" Yes, if you need to dynamically access the columns. MyQuery[variables.col] unfortunately only works with Structs. :(... read more »
