Server Side Validation Fail - PHP Self vs REQUEST URI

Hi Guys,

Just a quick question which I think I know the answer to, but just wanted to check.

Your extensions use PHP_SELF for things like referring failed validations back to itself if no redirect is set. I had problems with this on a site where the form was on a rewritten URL.

However, I simply changed PHP Self vs REQUEST URI and that solved my problem.

Am I right in thinking that the only reason this isn't good is because it doesn't work on IIS? Or are there other pitfalls I should take into consideration?
