This was it; you know I had this working before but then I changed the 
structure to try to combine both the processing script with the output 
section.  Since it was working fine (wasn't pushing the buffer), I 
didn't think twice until I ran into a site with a 'huge' menu.  In my 
live site I have this fixed with your advice.  A working form3.php is 
also in place. -Bob
