I don't know if this works for you, but there is a trick to do this, and
that is to split the page into two files:
The first file contains the actions to do (reset the counters in your case),
this is the file initially called by the form (button).
The second file is the file you want to be shown.
The first file has to have a html-header (?NutHttpSendHeaderBot?) containing
"Location: secondfile.html", this makes the browser request the second file
automatically, without any of the get parameters.

PS: POST methods have the ugly habbit (when using Interet Explorer) of
requesting the users if he wants to resent the information.... (at least
when using PHP).

Does the Ethernut http protocol support the 'post' method for forms?
The req_query structure appears to be empty when using the post method.

I have a web page with a table and a single button, the button triggers an
event  to clear the totals of the
RS-232 device I have attached.....that all works fine.....
but when I refresh the screen the query is resent
because I am using the 'get' method.

I was thinking the 'post' method would do the trick.
