In <the lift book> CHAPTER 5. SNIPPETS page 48:
You said:
Options for snippets invoked in this manner are passed via a slightly
modified form of a query string, with a semicolon separating options
instead of an ampersand.
Actually In HTTP Query String even semicolon separating is still a
valid query string. So it's not a modified form of query String, it's
a standard query string.


A link in a web page may have a URL that contains a query string.
However, the main use of query strings is to contain the content of an
HTML form, also known as web form. In particular, when a form
containing the fields field1, field2, field3 is submitted, the content
of the fields is encoded as a query string as follows:


* The query string is composed of a series of field-value pairs.
* The field-value pairs are each separated by an equals sign.
* The series of pairs is separated by the ampersand, '&' or
semicolon, ';'.

Thanks for pointing that out. I just uploaded a fixed version but it could a few minutes before the mirror syncs up.
