Hidden HTML elements not posting

P: n/a
New install of 4.3.3 and apache 1.3.27 as the web server. The install
went fine, no major hickups or anything like that. But now, I'm
finding some oddness. A form in a new app I'm working on has some
hidden input fields (<input type=hidden...>). For some reason these
are not getting posted. I verified this by sticking the following
block at the top of the page before any other processing is done:

while(list($key,$value) = each ($HTTP_POST_VARS))
{echo "$key = $value<br>\n";}

I get back every other field except the hidden one's.

Any good reason for this to be happening? I didn't see anything in
the ini file that would cause this.

are you sure the hidden fields have names and values and are inside the
<form...> </form> tags?
