I guess now we found a common basis for the discussion :-). I think the header of the mails for the discussion might be misleading. It should probably include something like "dynamic generation of query links from metadata with multiple values" (at least I think that is what Chaitra was trying to implement in her collection)...

 To conclude I think that "For" loop statements for handling metadata could be a very nifty feature of greenstone in the future...

cannot be done without a script.
ah, now i got your point: you need javascript to form the query
string - while i only considered output of some content all the
time. yeah, that seems to require javascript, even the standard
query form uses a lot of it (and btw, with javascript disabled the
search doesn't work - contrary to my earlier utterance regarding
limitations when javascript has not been enabled).

so, i think this is quite a whole different story. the actual output
(which i was focusing on) won't require using javascript anymore,
yet the query processing (which was your main concern) still will.
can we agree on that? ;-)
