    help with HTTP referrer and document.write

    Hey guys,

    Can somebody help me out?

    I have a form that I would like to track a hidden field.

    I would like the content of the hidden field be dependent on the referring website...here is an example:

    If somebody visits my site from www.cnn.com then I would like the content of the hidden field to be "CNN Site" If someone was to come from my own homepage, www.ownpage.com/index.html then I would like the content within the hidden field to be "My Own"

    Can anybody help me out?

    I have messed around with some code, but nothing seems to work.

    Thanks
