I wrote a javascript to generically wrap form elements in a XML
format.  Now I have to add yet another layer to our server to
take in a new format. Great! Now I'll have more OVERHEAD <g>

I thought I read some where in the internet where you can do B but it
required encoding schemas.  I have to do the search again for this,
but I properly misunderstood thinking this was all said and done.

The main point I realize now and surprise to see is that the client
world has not standardized on it yet.  Just coming into XML/SOAP now,
one would think this is all resolved by now. :-)

Thanks again
