Once upon a time Abigail shaped the electrons to say...

I'd like to see this implimented somewhere - a URL please?  (I don't doubt it
can be done, I'm one of those people who learns faster by seeing one example
than by hearing 100 explanations.)

Found it - 3 forms on one page.  I snipped a lot of banter and whitespace to
be easy on your boxes.  (I couldn't just send the URL, you have to login to
the server to get to this page.  New users pay, since I found it before it
went commercial, I get in free.)
