Don't use internal_redirect. It only changes the url apache uses for 
processing the request and the browser will not be aware of this change. 
The only way to do it is to send the browser a response with a 3xx (eg 
302) status code. Of course this means that the browser will need to 
perform an additional GET or POST.
