I doubt there's any performance difference. The only thing you *might* need to be concerned about with $_REQUEST is that depending on your GPC options, someone might be able to override POST variables from a form by supplying GET parameters in the URL querystring (or vice versa, as the case may be). But as long as you're doing good sanity/security checking on your request input, that shouldn't be a problem. -- Ernest MacDougal Campbell III, MCP+I, MCSE <dougal at gunters.org> http://dougal.gunters.org/ http://spam.gunters.org/ Web Design & Development: http://www.mentalcollective.com/ This message is guaranteed to be 100% eror frea!
