Exactly. I expected to get all instances of Johnson or of John but I got
only 1 and I saw that there were others, so that didn't seem right.
And, if I may point out, the instructions are not available if js is not
enabled O:-)   so that leaves only intuition to decipher things
especially if you only want to do a search.

BTW - I seem to have solved the problem of filtering the inputs. Was
rather simple: just use one form for each search.
And to avoid using @ for the error of $_POST['select'] one just has to
declare one just has to declare
$_POST['submit'] = ""; at top of script. :-)  (I'm learning, I'm
learning) - now I have to check it all out.
