Re: checkBox question
Put  (open and block square brackets) behind the field name so that
the values are placed into an array, then join them together using
<input type="checkbox" name="pets" value="dingo"> Dingo
<input type="checkbox" name="pets" value="donkey"> Donkey
<input type="checkbox" name="pets" value="bob dillon"> Bob Dillon
<input type="text" name="pets" value="" size="8">
... and then ...
$pets = implode(', ', $_POST['pets']);
