well sure, the hyperlink is better

jeff, thanks for your answer too, plenty of good reasons

aardvark, i was prompted to reply by your comment

   "but that's *not* a form the way you're using it..."

in the context of the discussion, a chapter and verse dissection of valid
forms and hyperlink targets, some people might have got the wrong

obviously a jump menu is a form

how to (mis)use it is a different subject

i like to keep the two concepts separate

also, i was playing devil's advocate, trying to balance your strident

and you're such a joy to argue, er, exchange ideas with

i actually have a spare rolodex, if you want it

you can't buy those things no more
