Description

Referrer. Took me a while to figure out why it was freaking out when I tried to access that, hah!

Unless, of course, I'm missing something and it is actually spelled this way for HTTP... w3 has some documents that say 'Referer', too, but they all have [sic] after them, sooo...

Just a small one. :)

Sad but true. Google hits:

18,100 for HTTP_REFERRER

The RFC states:

The Referer[sic] request-header field allows the client to specify, for the server's benefit, the address (URI) of the resource from which the Request-URI was obtained (the "referrer", although the header field is misspelled.)

(from http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec14.html#sec14.36)
