Can you tell me a bit more what you mean?  Bulleted lists?  Ahh, I
see.  You are right.  I'll have to look into that.  It may or may not
be fixable...

BTW, you can retrieve page variables from more than one page.  So you
could set up one data page to list most common foods, and their
caloric values.  Then in another group the daily log (set using the
timestamp feature). Type in the food, and you get the calories
automatically...  Just an idea.

Yes that's a good idea. Actually I'd like to add some kind of math
capability because I need to be able to develop a shopping cart
system.  ZAP can do all the data storage, but can't yet do the price
calculations.  If there were a php command to execute a string
containing php commands, that might really open some doors...

Let me know if you have any problems getting ZAP to do what you want.
Right now the revised logging code is not quite yet working perfectly.
 Give me a bit more time to fix it.  Shouldn't take long.  I'm getting
these endless loops suggesting the page is not including properly...

Ahhh, just dawned on me where THAT problem is.  Should have it fixed
