What if the document in the target window has changed?  what if the
document in the target window is in a different domain, what if
another document with a form in is partially way through being
rendered in the the other window? What about the situation where 2
seperate form posts target the same window, one of which sends a
replace values, the other a reset - which is honoured, what does it
depend on, the order of submission, the order of recieving, random?
