i have some buttons like this:
<INPUT TYPE="image" name="update" value="update" SRC="images/update_button.gif" width="92" height="25" BORDER="0" ALT="Update">
when they are passed firefox displays "update=update&update.x=22"
but ie only shows "update.x=22"
so in order to know which button was pressed i need to look for the variable update.x or empty.x or checkout.x
but thenever i try
it is not seeing the variable empty.x even tho i can look right in the broswer url and see that it is there....so i am thinking there must be a different way to capture that variable...does anyone know how?
I remember having a problem with this a few years ago, can't quite remember what I did.
to see what exactly is being passed (and picked up) in both IE and FF.
thank you so much....why didnt i think of that??? lol

You shouldn't use decimal points in variable names in the URL, only letters, underscores and digits. Variable names are pretty sensitive, so don't take the risk.
hex, that variable name is not set by me it is autogenerated form the <input type="image"
