you *can* use the "?" --the results are the same as a method="GET" which
amounts to the collection being in Request.QueryString instead of
Request.Form; it works seamlessly (provided you get your query string right
=) )

further, if you use the shorthand notation of getting the values
(Request("item") instead of Request.Form("item")) the ASP engine will look
through the query string, the POSTed form, cookies, and even headers to find
the value....

(I think that's the list, I can't remember (atm) all of the places the
Request object looks, if someone has it offhand that'd be great and I'll
memorize it)
