Please ignore my question - I just figured it out. I had the method="post"
in the input type="submit" tag rather than in the form tag. It works!

However, if one has an HTML select/option menu scrolling list with multiple
selections, how does one get the number of values for the same name with
HTTP_POST_VARS? Or how does one scroll through the list of choices passed?
