I don't see any reason why it wouldn't. The difference in this case is that there is code embedded in the web page. If the server is set up correctly, when it goes to serve the POST request, it will load the web page and (presumably) parse the code embedded within. The webbot will have access to the POSTed data and should be able to process it.

The stuff on the client side should look the same -- it's just different on the server side.

With that in mind, what happens when you try it?
