Maybe I Just Need Another Set Of Eyes Here

This may be a very simple problem that I'm just not seeing, but maybe another set of eyes looking at it will be able to pick out what I'm doing wrong. I have some PHP code that outputs the following editavatar.php (stripped down for brevity):

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"   "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"><html>  <head>	<title>cyber0ne.com</title>	<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />  </head>  <body>	<form action="/users/editavatar.php" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">	  <input type="file" class="POST" name="userAvatar" /><br />	  <input type="hidden" name="updateAvatar" value="1" /><input type="submit" name="postAvatar" value="Submit" />	</form>  </body></html>

For some reason, whenever I post back with the Submit on the form, the post values (in the $_POST array in PHP) for userAvatar and updateAvatar are empty. Is there something wrong with the HTML on this that would be causing the post to be empty, or in some way incorrect?

When using file inputs dont use $_POST[''] use $HTTP_POST_FILES['']; like to display the file name of the selected file you would do $HTTP_POST_FILES['userAvatar']['name']
Ah, you're right about that. But wouldn't that hidden field still be available in $_POST? In any event, I don't really need that hidden field. And if I need any other $_POST values on that form, I can hop on over to the PHP forum.Thanks :)
