Ok, I'll have to try that on my next project. Unfortunately these forms were 
written by another developer and there too many variables to rename to make an 
array and not enough time on the project :-)  But for next time.

I've seen many examples of assigning values to session variables w/o forms on 
the list and online. Now should I look to set those values on the next page in 
the sequence of forms that the user is entering?

*** session_register("test_var");*** // Is this ok?
<form action="page2.php">
<input type="text" name="test_var"></input>
<input type="submit">

*** $_SESSION["test_var"] = $test_var;  *** // Or is this ok?
// or $HTTP_SESSION_VARS["test_var"] = $test_var on <=4.0.6
... (rest of page here)

Which of the two lines is more failsafe in terms of working every time?
