Yes.. the problem with the hidden method.. is the following.

Let says I use the string "Testing the \"waters\" "

Now.. if I do a <input type=hidden value="<?echo $var?>"> the qoutes in my
string do not escape correctly. So when you look at the source in
netscape.. it ends the string at \ ... just before the first qoute.

So.. is there any other way besides those two methods? Can I pass a object
through the URL?
