Original Page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/[article-name] Example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Kropotkin Edit Page: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=[article-name]&action=edit Example: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Peter_Kropotkin&action=edit Every header souce code of an Edit-Page has exactly the same format - first there are 3.663 static bytes - then the start of the form-tag, which is static again, but contains the article-name - which could have different length: - - - - - - - - [Header Of a Edit-Page Of Wikipedia]- - - - - - - - Editing Intermediate technology - Edit this page - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
