that would be great.

it would allow all sorts of things, like creating confirmation pages
before submitting a form.  i would like to use it to create paypal
buttons based on what existed in the previous form page.

incidentally, is there a way to include a php script inside a wiki
page?  for example, say i have a form processing page which did something
with the data, like write it to a file or email it.  is it possible
to call that script from the a wiki page, giving it access to the
form variables.

at the moment, i use pmwiki to make the form, have a form processing
page which does its business (eg, save/email) and then redirects to
another wiki page.

it would be great to be able to run that script from inside a wiki
page, eg, (:php_include script.php:)
