You don't seem to have a problem with preparing the request[*], but
with getting at the contents of the response.  Is that correct?

[*] That's what most questions about -dump with forms are about.

If you mean that (textfield, textarea) are shown as
rather than with the initial (value, content) -
there is currently no way to change that for -dump.  This would
require source changes.

Putting stuff that's is never meant to be submitted back in a
textarea is an abuse of HTML.  Ask Altavista not to do that.

If you can give detailed information - like a full URL for testing,
with all the relevant data - I could look at it and maybe suggest
a workaround.
