Hi All,

I am trying to write a WEB client program with Perl to simulate filling-out 
a form.  The source of the form is attached after my questions.  I am 
confused by the form statements.  In the form statement, there are two 
"name"s and two "methods".  I have read the HTML 4.01 spec, but it does not 
say any thing about this type of forms.  Could someone please help me 
understanding this form, and more importantly, how to simulate filling this 
form(s)?

Thanks a lot for your help.
