Pocket Internet Explorer - passing parameters in URL

I'm looking at developing a site for use on a PocketPC (IPAQ) and I want to pass parameters in the URL from one page to another.

For example, I have a page of news headlines where the user can click on the headline to view the full news article.
I'm passing the NewsId in the URL like this:
NewsStory.htm?NewsId=16234
...Javascript on the NewsStory page then picks up the NewsId and searches an XML file for the relevant story.

This works fine on my normal PC, but when I run it on the IPAQ, the parameters are not being passed in the URL. Is this a restriction with Pocket IE?
If so, is there any way I can get round this?

I've heard that jscript works, but only a limited amount.  (The example that comes to mind is the <script> tag is not supported.  etc see microsofts website for pocketpc devel.)
