I just went back to my email archive and sure enough, I had saved your message on the off chance that it might be useful. But since it discussed cookies and authentication, did not realize that it was really (I'm guessing, now) a general-purpose http client package.

Sometimes I build my cgi engines to be state machines, so that if you visit it the first time, it shows you the top form, and then subsequent visits have the new state encoded into the hidden fields (or the submit button value) so that new pages are displayed.

That "oddity" is an attempt to make the page work correctly if the user selects an npa (area code) from the drop down, and types in an nxx (exchange) in the box, and then hits the Enter key instead of clicking on the submit button. Bill Dudley
