aliasing query strings

Fellow developers,
I Am trying to find a way to alias my query strings so I can optimize my
site for search engines. Currently my site is doing well in search
results with my static content, but since I've switched to dynamic content
(same material) the engines don't fine my stuff, not even the build in
search
that comes from my host.

so simply, my question is, how can I change:

www.anysite.com/details.php?cat=food

to www.anysite.com/food.htm

My site depends heavily on search engine traffic, so any help would be
greatly appreciated.

You asked the same thing in alt.comp.lang.php, where you
have replies waiting.

What is the accepted way to share a message across multiple newsgroups?

So let me get this straight. The content was 'static'
before, but now it is 'dynamic' even though it is the same
material. Why is that?

Try 'mod rewrite', and if that's out of the question look here:

Hope it helps!

Is is true there're search engines out there that don't know that different
URL arguments make different pages? Does anyone actually use such a useless
service?

Are you aware that a search engine can only "find" this page if you have an
explicit link to this page on one of your other pages?

And are you aware that search engines don't go out and and probe your site
every day? It can take a long time for Google to get around and refresh
its picture of your site.
