determine the input type and pass that along with the array. However it may
be easier just to store the text field as a separate variable, and knowing
this, parse it into your languages array after both inputs have been passed
to the server. You could store languages as a multi-dimensional associative
array.. something like...
$languages = array (
select_field => array('english', 'spanish', 'ect..'),
text_field => "swahili"; // or whatever :)
So in this way it's a little bit more involved to keep track of everything..
but at least you know that swahili belongs to the text field and the others
belong to the select field.
