Very cool :)

I take it there is an ajax lib included somewhere in the background?
Is that something available for public use?
Would be nice if you could link items on any web page...

I think that it's much more simple than that.

But I could be wrong. I think it's happened at some point in the past. Maybe.
Andostre -- 70 Human Priest on Crushridge
Spaten -- 70 Dwarf Warrior on Crushridge
Tleki -- 30s Gnome Warrior on Silver Hand
Lamon -- 40s Orc Warlock on Silver Hand
(And a bunch of other considerably less than 70 alts all scattered about)

Tleki is exactly right. That link to Wowhead's "Powered" page will give you all the information you need to do what I just did on the forum.
