I haven't gotten a chance to go home and play with this yet, but I was wondering how were going to check the first step? How would you perform the check <%if step == 1%>...use referrers? Or were you talking about including a form field value that it would use to validate maybe? Also, once the first page is submitted, how will it return step_2 unless you use a separate cgi script? Another way of looking at this would be to use some sort of global that would increment the number of pages using a script....but somehow I don't think your post was meant to be this involved......must be midterm exams getting to me!
Thanks for any additional light you can shed for me....I'm gonna go play with this later tonight.
