I had no problem writing the html using either method - name1, name2,
etc, or using the same name. It's in getting the values that was
causing a me problem. In getfirst('fieldname') or getlist('fieldname'),
the 'fieldname' does have to match the name in markup. I see now that it
would be easy to construct that name dynamically during iteration. Thanks!

The problem I was having is a general problem that would exist (at
least, for me) in any multi-row html form - a common thing to do with
html. I didn't even present my particlular problem - I changed the
field names to something general - my actual form is not a phone list at
all - it didn't want to clutter the issue with a vertical industry
Again, thanks for the help! -Greg
