So here's my quick take on pro's and con's.
QueryString = + conventional web coding
              - security exposures

CrossPage Postbacks (not really different than other alt's)

HiddenField + more secure (not "hanging out" visible)
              - not completely hidden (may be found in page text)
              - extra coding steps

SessionState + more secure (can't be seen on page at all)
              - resource use (but won't hiddenfields also use memory?)
                     (app needs sessionstate anyway...)
              + "global variable" type programming ( + for my skill set..)

App will probably run under HTTPS anyway, but ya nevah 'no...

Anything else come to mind?

Thanks!
