[thelist] Multilple forms to one result

Thanks to all,

I figured out how to collect all form inputs, bunch 'em into one string,
pass that string as ONE hidden field, append the next form results, pass
again and finally split into the individual values I needed.

This passed string was only 2K.

Is there a limit to the size of passing stuff with POST?
