> Hi,

Hi Simon,

You'll probably want to look at Bootstrapping your framework too. Ideally the 
bootstrap will include (or have an autoload function) to load your classes - 
controllers/models/views, and it'll also deal with routing so deciding which 
controller and action to call based on the URL, this usually involves doing an 
explode() on the $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'], and using Apache's mod_rewrite to 
forward all requests to your bootstrap (often named index.php)

Building frameworks and going through the motions are a great way to build up 
experience and play with areas of the language you might not normally use, you 
might want to get inventive with the Reflection class to check actions or 
controllers exist and then forward the user to a 404 page later on.
