yes, a very clean way to do it (that I've used successfully) is 
something like:

$current_page = "User Login";
if ($badlogin) {
    header("Location: http://domain.com/~eprice/badlogin.php?errormsg="; . 

This cleanly separates the string from the variable, but they are 
concatenated before being passed as an argument to the header() 
function.  This passes the name of the script as a querystring variable 
called $_GET['errormsg'], so that the receiving script can take some 
action based on where the user was sent from.
