Correct. It's a quick & dirty, to get the functionality I need *RIGHT
NOW*. However, upon reviewing the proposed query string parameter stuff
you sugested, I'm now inclided to make those modifications. Well, ok,
sometime this week, since, like donald, I've got some client work ythat
needs done beforehand. *grin*

Which is always nice, I'll admit *grin*

Exactly. That was the functionality I really wanted. However, the time
it'll take me to write the logic sheet versus the time it takes me to add
the patch was why I wrote the patch first. 

However, now that I have something that works for my client(s), I can
begin writing something a little more useful to the rest of the
world. *grin*
