We have a situation where were are in a form, but want a sub form to post (which I'm told will not work in HTML).

So... what if instead of using a subform, we provided a button which hooked into some javascript which requested the required page (in this case the same page).

Now I know javascript can request a page be launched in a new window, but how about in the same window/tab ?

i.e. the javascript replicates a HTML form/submit cycle ?
