precisely,

what i was thinking of is: (NOTE the action is moved to submit!!)

<FORM METHOD="POST">
Enter Name: <INPUT TYPE="TEXT" ...>
Enter Date: <INPUT TYPE="TEXT" ...>
etc...
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="FAX" ACTION="http://xyz.com/fax.cgi">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="EMail" ACTION="http://xyz.com/email.cgi">
</FORM>

i am not an implementor of mosaic browsers but it doesn't seem
difficult to implement.
