OK .. admittedly this is newbie dumb...
Its a JAVA script in a FORM

I have passed (successfully)  the referring URL into my form
page on loading....

<script language="JavaScript"><!--
    // THIS IS THE URL FROM THE REFERRERING PAGE!
    var originalURL = unescape(location.search.substring(1));
    //alert(originalURL );    // this works!
//--></script>

Now I just want to send this URL name from my form when submit
is pressed so I added this in my Form code.

<input type=hidden name=Referrer value="originalURL">

Now, ON submit I can send this hidden field, but it is always
arrives as
    Referrer: originalURL
not the value I see in my alert ALERT test (i.e. the actual URL)

stupid huh... can anyone help me?

Thanks -stone
