Ahh yes, that was exactly what I needed.  (I knew it was simple!)

But that brings up another question: whenever I have POST information
propagate over more than one page, is it generally a good idea to *always*
use htmlspecialchars () on my data?

I.e., even if the data shouldn't need htmlspecialchars () (numbers for
example), it seems like it wouldn't hurt to use that function just to make
sure nothing is lost.

Thanks again!
