Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

By "Content" line I meant this line:

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";

I have tried many scripts, they all do this. I have problems with 
JavaScript too so I am not sure yet about this just being a Perl or CGI 
problem. I might even have multiple problems. I can see the possibility 
of permission problems, Perl problems, CGI problems, and/or browser 
problems. I am running the latest released version of all including IE 
and Firefox. All I do know is what all the examples that show this as 
working don't work. I have the book, CGI Programing 101, and can't get 
its examples to work.

It is very frustrating.
