Earth and Moon Viewer: Stateless Version Posted

The overhaul of dynamic Web resources at Fourmilab was completed today by the posting of an updated version of Earth and Moon Viewer which generates its embedded images in "stateless" mode, which permits requests to be routed by the load balancer to any machine in the server farm without the need for session persistence. Stateless versions of Solar System Live and Your Sky were posted earlier, and served to test the mechanism before it was deployed in the more complicated and frequently accessed Earth and Moon Viewer. The dynamically-generated HTML produced in response to requests is now XHTML 1.0 (transitional) compliant; static HTML files associated with the application were upgraded to XHTML 1.0 last April.
