Handling multiple file uploads on one 'page'

    My understanding is that using the FILE form element to allow a file upload
    is limited to one unique file per page. Is that correct?

    Any thoughts on how best to design an interface to allow multiple uploads?

    I have a database record that will link from 2 to 4 files that have been
    uploaded.

    When entering a new record, I'd like for them to be able to upload the files
    as well. For now, My thinking is that I'd wrap each upload field in a panel.
    They'd upload the first document, postback, add the data to the DB, and then
    show the second panel. Sort of a 'wizard' interface.

    Any other suggestions on how best to do this?

    As far as I know, you can have any number of FILE form elements on the
    Oh. Duh. Yea, you might be right. I was thinking one file per page but
    really should have been thinking one file per FILE form element. ;o)
