This will work except for those browsers with javascript turned off -
I've seen php examples of how to do this in books, (capture the user
agent anyway, then once captured - just plop it in the db) there should
be some on line somewhere.   

Also if you have access to the web server, I think most web server stat
programs allow for this.  The one we use is and we
have it configured to capture user agents.
