Coldfusion Redirect & Location with Session data

Let's say you have a form that handles products.
If someone shows up to the form without an ?id=##, you're sure they must mean to create one. If there is an id, they mean to update. In the end though, all the user cares about is the "Save" button. "Create" and "Update" are your job to worry about. So you've created a wonderful cfc that does the work on the form, sets a message about the result in the session, and want to display it.

Jquery UI Tabs - Extending Tab Behavior To Anchor Links

I was recently working with Jquery UI's tabs on a site. It does a fantastic job of making web standard reasonable markup into tabs. The whole thing is a simple enough overlay that any end user could make the needed tab structure themselves (with just a bit of copy paste).
