Well, not entirely -- they don't return the CC info, for instance.

But remember, you're POSTing the data to Authorize.net and getting
a response, which if I recall is just a comma-delimited string, so
the fields are positionally relevant, the first being the 'Response
Code'. So I'm not sure your PHP code is going to work, but I won't
swear to it since I don't use PHP often.

Yeah, but they provide 1) a test server, and 2) a test mode for the
live server, as well as dummy CC#s specifically for testing. So I'd
be taking advantage of that to check my process... Again, that's in
the docs too.
