Sorry for giving an incomplete answer!

I think the hidden n field is necessary, even if you got a correct
form action=$PageUrl:

 (:input hidden n {*$FullName}:)

But if you use your own action and action handler function, you could
change that and have your function determine somehow what the output
page should be. n=pagename is just convenient to pass the pagename to
whatever handles the request.
