Personally, I think this is great stuff and hope you keep it on the list,
'cause I'm learning as you go!

Brainstorming is great stuff!
For any input field's onBlur or onFocus you could do submit a form that
would load in a hidden frame or iframe on the page:

<form id="dummyPage" name="dummyPage" action="dummyPage.html"
onblur=" dummyPage.submit(); "

That would keep the session open only if they were active on the page.  I
wouldn't use onChange.  I guess you could add it to the onMouseOver.  Or
you could add some <div>'s to the page and add it to them as onMouseOvers
as well.  Problem with that is that some optical mice trigger the mouse
over event a lot easier than normal mice, of course bumping the mouse would
keep the session alive as well.

We are getting away from the intent of this list with this discussion.  If
additional html or javascript discussions are necessary we should take this

  Subject: Re: Session Time Out for browser app

  Peter and Bill,

  Just for discussion's sake let's take this a step further...

  It would be nice if I could somehow tell the dummy page that I was
  active in the main document - i.e. only refresh the session by reloading
  the page if they had been active (changing, focus/blur fields on the
  in the last 5 minutes.

  This way, the security of having the session time out would be preserved,
  while keeping it open if they are actually keying data.

  Maybe I could use a generic function for the onfocus, onblur or onchange
  event for input fields on the document that would set a variable on the
  dummy page indicating there is activity, causing the page to refresh
  the session timeout time span.  when the dummy page refreshes, this
  variable would be reset to it's original value, and the page would only
  refresh again if the variable was changed again.

  Is there a way to condition the meta tag?   or, can a page be refreshed
  other ways?  is there a function or @command to retrieve the session
  time-out value (I couldn't find one)?

  Just thinking out loud..
