Netscape CGI problem Update!

Now I really need some help, because the I did some testing and this is what is strange. When I "submitted" to the page that came up blank on Netscape in my cgi, I pulled a source code and low and behold the source code read just like it should! It had everything that was supposed to be showing up (it even carried the hidden values correctly! This only made my confusion even greater as I'm sure you can understand. Has anyone else ever had something like this happen to them, or know why netscape has the correct source code but is refusing to show the page?
Thanks,
Dreamer

Hi

usually on Netscape if you dont close a table tag then it wont show the contents of the page.

Can you post your code , so I can see it.

Thanks Cure!!! When you said something about the table I decided to go through the code with a fine tooth comb and sure enough that was it! Now it just seems like Netscape doesn't like the preformatted stuff, but it works!

Your Welcome Dreamer:

Usually when a website doesnt show up in NN but it shows up in IE its because the table tag wusnt closed. I know this because it happen to me before.

Yea, it would be so much easier if all the browsers worked the same way when it came to things like that Smile Well, I'm off to try and figure out the pre-formatted stuff in Netscape now. Wish me luck!
