[i did: you gotta read *all* of my posts, as boring and
redundant as they may be... but your explanation is
obviously more detailed...]

since he's reinforcing non-server solutions, a search and
replace function can be very powerful as well, but i didn't
expand on it in my last post... if you wrap the form in a
unique pair of comment tags:
   <!-- Start Diggity Form -->
   <!-- End Diggity Form -->
it can be easy to replace it using a regular expression or
even a low-level search and replace throughout all of your
documents... all you need is a capable text editor (which
are everywhere)... you don't *need* the comment tags, but it
just proves easier to handle...
