  Your HTML looks something like this:
              <INPUT NAME="hysterect" Type="RADIO" Value="n">No<BR>
               <INPUT NAME="hysterect" Type="RADIO" Value="y">Yes<BR>
               <INPUT NAME="hysterect" Type="RADIO" Value="d">Don't  
   #if you skip a radio item it doesn't get sent; if you skip a text  
field the key is sent with a null value.
  so you write something like "if answers.has_key("hysterect"):

The trick to figuring out these things is start with the minimum  
python form handler
def handleformx(req,**answers)
      return str(answers)

it'll show you exactly what got sent for various inputs or lack of  
filling things out etc.
