Oooh...I tried. I really did. I *tried* not to reply with a post to tell you
that JavaServer Pages could help with this problem. I do seem to be on a bent
with that subject, lately, thinking of it as the panacea for all of our
technical writing ills.

But, anyway, if you opt to do PDF Fill-In Forms, and want to see how to code
the back end to store the entries in a database, you can check out the demo
that I created a few months back, at http://jsp.davidcastro.com/acrobat .
