Thanks to Mark and Jim I got this straightened out. I ended up doing  
some major reworking, and it seems to work exactly as I wanted.

If anyone's interested in the finished product, you can get it from  
the message box:

go stack URL "http://asay.byu.edu/typeAheadSearch.rev"

Hope someone finds it useful. As always, if you find a flaw in it,  
I'd like to know, so I can fix it.
