Sorry, the referring URL is in the query string. I'm creating a bookmarking system where you have a button on your toolbar with this JS function:

These two functions work seperately to get the two bits of information I need:
However, I'm not sure how to combine them to get the query string I need, which would look something like ?url=[referring url]&title=[referring title]. It's the apostrophes seperating up the link and the encodeURI functions that are playing up. Having tried the obvious (JS in red for clarity)...
