Wow!  Nope, I'm stumped now. It does seem to be a problem with PHP handing
large blocked of text but as I've personally posted 8k of test from a form
into a text field I'll be dogged if I know what's happening. Any possibility
that it's a quotes problem?  If you view the source, is there a PHP error
masked by an HTML tag in there? (grasping at straws here)

I altered the add.php script to print the query to screen instead of
sending it to MySQL to try this.  It still acted the same, regardless of
whether it was sending it to the MySQL server or printing it.  In fact,
it even had the same reaction when I commented out the print command as
well.  This appears to be something in the form-handling of PHP.  Any
ideas now?  Thanks for all your help.

Well, I guess I won't do that now - MySQL seems to not be the culprit.
