	Would someone know on how to distinguish between
two submit buttons 
in the same form. In my application, one of them is for
"Browse", while 
the other one is for "Submit". the CGI script has to take
actions for the two. Can't put browse in a separate form as
both buttons 
need some common fields.

Use separate values in your submit button definitions, such
VALUE="browse"> </p>
VALUE="submit"> </p>

Have your script search for the value of SUBMIT.  If it
=browse execute the appropriate script or portion of the
script.  If SUBMIT=submit, then execute the submit script or
portion of code.  

Theoretically this should work, but I have not tried it, so I can
not validate it.
