LJ URL parameters

I occasionally find myself using various URL parameters that Livejournal supports. To my knowledge there is no single place that documents them all (no, I did not search the web to find out), so here's what disparate information I collected. I may amend this post occasionally, so feel free to bookmark it; and if you know of anything that's not covered here, by all means let me know.

?format=light
Keeps Livejournal from applying user styles and uses the default site scheme instead: specifically, the one that you seleccted, or Horizon for logged-out users. Documented in FAQ #259.
?nohtml=1
Displays entries as raw (escaped) HTML. Documented in FAQ #259.
?nojs=1
(?) Added if your browser has Javascript support disabled. (h/t ungulata)
?s2id=...
Displays content in a certain S2 journal style. You can go to Your Styles for ID numbers of styles you've created/customized yourself; other than that I don't know how IDs relate to styles. Mentioned in FAQ #177.
?show=CNPY
Used on your friends page, determines whether communities (C), news (N), personal journals (P) and/or syndicated accounts (Y) will be shown; any combination is possible. No effect on other pages. Documented in FAQ #259.
?style=mine
Displays content in your own journal style, rather than style of the journal you're viewing. Useful for styles that make entries difficult to read, and often more visually pleasant than ?format=light. Documented in FAQ #259.
?usescheme=horizon/vertigo/lynx/lanzelot/xcolibur/dystopia
Displays site pages in the specified site scheme. Documented in FAQ #186.
?view=schemes
On My Account Settings — Display, show XColibur and Dystopia. No effect on other pages.

These are all the ones I know so far.

There is also ?nojs=1. This option is enabled if your browser isn't using javascript.

I suspect that it switches the page to one that displays and functions properly without javascript. Each time I navigate to a new page, it loads and then there is a one to three second pause at which it reloads with the ?nojs=1 appended in the address bar.
