Thanks Michael,

Again, my 'newbieness' is going to be very apparent. For the first option you 
referenced the 'action of the form tag' -- what is that? Do you mean, as in 
'<form action="demo.php" method="get">'?

Your second suggestion sounds like what I want to achieve, but I'm not clear 
as to what you mean or refer to: "have the form call itself" -- How do I do 
that? And secondly, where would I put the header tag: with the calling form 
or the called form?

Oh, it's so embarassing to know so little :)
