So in order to support the rel-tag microformat I have to do server
redirects? Is anyone seeing the problem here?

The answer is, while on apache servers, using mod_rewrite or redirects
is fairly easy, there are app server configurations where redirects
are not as simple as this.

So redirects are not a solution.

I want a solution that involves the web page, NOT the server.
