400 error Can't Post

For some odd reason i get the following error from netscape:

In Reply To
HTTP Error 400
400 Bad Request
Due to malformed syntax, the request could not be understood by the server. The client should not repeat the request without modifications.

but the script works perfectly fine in internet explorer. The script is at and then click the "Quick Compare" logo on the upper right corner. The do a search and for some reason it gives this error in the top frame when the results come out. Anything to make this compatable?

Re: 400 error [In reply to] Can't Post


in my travels i have seen this before and usually it is the cause of not filling out the full path (or leaving it blank) in the form field that the page is being sent to. IE will by default, send you to the script that you are working with, but netscape will not.

so, try, typing in the full path to the script in the form field, if you are creating this page on the fly.. try typing this into the
<form action= $ENV{'SCRIPTNAME'} method=post> this will most likely solve your problem..

i hope this helps..
