Just finished this months article and it covers http posts from the browser to XML Web services on the fly. The article is very technical in nature but I invite you to have a look. All the source for the examples is available to download as well.
Take the link that say "view this months issue"

Please try the Amazon webservices I integrated with PHP at my site : http://arupbhanja.com/soap/amazon.php uses the nusoap XML parser and Amazon [US] server.
Look fwd to your comments /views.

I gather you are making a form post then calling server to server to the amazon site.
What I am doing is calling the service from the browser and posting data from the browser. The service then returns the data to the browser and I do the transformations in the browser.
Also the data binding is really simple - pick the xml for the source, and pick the data fields. dink.
you get a table or a populated form. Your choice.
I was trying to get similar functionlity out of netscape so if you or anyone has thoughts on that let me know. I'll include it as a side bar on a future issue.
