We are try to code a custom layout for 2 combined screens.  
This means that the values of screen fields in the first 
screen will need to be stored so that we can place them 
wherever we want on the page once we move ahead to the 
second screen.  Say there are about 20 values that need to 
be stored.  What is the most effective way to do this?  
Create 20 different variables or create a single 
delimited string which is then parsed.  I assume the first 
option uses more server memory while the second more 
processing time.  Our server will be a Pentium III 700Mhz 
with 512 RAM. (As an aside, is the Elite server written 
with the ability to take full advantage of dual processesor 
machines?)  Also, is there a way to destroy the variables 
after loading the page to free up the memory space?
