"isdtp" URL Parameter

Can someone explain to me what purpose the "isdtp" URL parameter serves?  I stumbled across it in the discussion forum awhile ago while looking for a way to display a record without the SFDC header and navigator panes.

The reason I ask is that I noticed that if you append "isdtp=mn" to the URL for a record, there are some extra icons next to the help icon for emailing, printing, and customizing the page.  These action icons appear to be helpful and was wondering why they aren't included in the standard layout for a record.

That parameter is used for pages inside the Agent Console to make them render with a smaller font in a frame and have the frames talk to each other.  You may find some unexpected results if you try to use that parameter outside the Console.
