Some breaking news.
If you visit my blog
Check my permalinks and you will see that there is no 'index.php' in site even though I can't use Mod_Rewrite. No more ugly 'Index.php' in my URL's.
As you may or may not be aware, when using hosting that does not accommodate Mod_Rewrite, you can have 'almost friendly permalinks', but the downside is that the 'index.php' is included in the URL.
There are several ways to get around this, not all of them seem to work effectively.
And here we are. It's in testing at the moment, but if there are no side-affects, then this will be made available via this blog
