My problem was a REBOL problem, not a browser nor a GET-vs-POST problem. I was already using POST. The problem was that I still wasn't getting all of the data into REBOL. When I rewrote the script using Perl, all of the data showed up. I'm going to test the idea from the REBOL FAQ (URL in Allen's reply) and report back on whether that solved the problem. -jn-
