      Eric,
      Thanks very much for your reply.

      Further, I want to enclose this drag drop functionality between lists
      in an HTML form - so that once I am done with the drag and drop, we
      can submit the form and process the contents of each list.

      Can you suggest some ways of achieving this (without using AJAX)

      Thanks again
      Kamna
