        (wrt application/x-www-form-urlencoded)

        """ The control names/values are listed in the order they
        appear in the document. The name is separated from the value
        by `=' and name/value pairs are separated from each other by
        `&'. """

        """ A "multipart/form-data" message contains a series of parts,
        each representing a successful control. The parts are sent to the
        processing agent in the same order the corresponding controls
        appear in the document stream. """
