comment How do you get the current list item in JavaScript?
No, this only gets you items if you select multiple items in the list. I'm looking for the current item that's shown in the DisplayForm.aspx popup when you click on an item. The .Selection property is null inside this dialog.

comment Two seperate Sharepoint Servers pointing to the same Content Database
You're just asking for trouble. This is not a supported configuration. Use SQL clustering to deal with availability.
