Surely that would be for the apache module to handle? Certainly not something 
for the web forms classes themselves, as ultimately they just generate HTML,

I have experience at developing a Tcl library of similar functionality (but 
smaller in scope) than we forms. As for the server functionality, well, 
writing an apache module is *well* beyond my sphere of knowledge. I mean, I 
am sure I could learn, but, well, I have got a job and a life <grin>.
