And, if one chooses to continue to contribute to a 401k with post-tax dollars after the limit has
been reached, is that extra amount still limited to 10% of total annual gross income?

The 10000.00 limit did not change for 1999. As I understand the limits on after-tax contributions are limited only by the employer plan set-up. The IRS is not concerned with how much after-tax money you contribute, as they have already received their cut.

Hope this answers your questions,
