Thanks Matt,

Actually, at this point, I've reverted back to "register_globals=on" until I 
figure out what's the best way to do this. 

So far, I have no references to "session_register() on any page. In your 
opinion, should I go with "$_SESSION" or use the other approach, 

I gather I've some fun ahead with #3! If I use $HTTP_SESSION_VARS", will I 
still need to do this?

Please pray the Holy Rosary to end the holocaust of abortion.
Remember in your prayers the Holy Souls in Purgatory.
