The server is not the client.  I've tried the same code on two different 
servers, browing with various versions of IE, Netscape, Mozilla, and 

However, I can live with this, because I put the beta version (a rewrite) of 
the code on the new webserver, and it works.  I find it very odd that the old 
one doesn't though, considering that it's the same Apache/PHP configuration, 
and the same code, on both machines.  Only difference is PHP v4.0.6 on the 
old one, vs. PHP v4.1.1 on the new one.

If anyone is interested, I can send a tarball of the old code.
