action="<?php echo htmlspecialchars($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']); ?>">
<td><label for="username">Username</label></td>
<td><input type="text" name="username" id="username"
value="<?php if (isset($_POST['username']))
echo htmlspecialchars($_POST['username']); ?>"/></td>

$form = ob_get_clean();

// show the form if this is the first time the page is viewed

$GLOBALS['TEMPLATE']['content'] = $form;

// otherwise process incoming data

$password1 = (isset($_POST['password1'])) ? $_POST['password1'] : '';
$password2 = (isset($_POST['password2'])) ? $_POST['password2'] : '';
$password = ($password1 && $password1 == $password2) ?
sha1($password1) : '';

// validate CAPTCHA
$captcha = (isset($_POST['captcha']) &&
strtoupper($_POST['captcha']) == $_SESSION['captcha']);

// add the record if all input validates
if ($password &&
$captcha &&
User::validateUsername($_POST['username']) &&
// make sure the user doesn't already exist
$user = User::getByUsername($_POST['username']);
if ($user->userId)
$GLOBALS['TEMPLATE']['content'] = '<p><strong>Sorry, that ' .
'account already exists.</strong></p> <p>Please try a ' .
