Exactly why I'm so cornfused :).

I'd added debugging lines to the script, which basically prints
out ALL of QUERY_STRING, then the different args in the QUERY_STRING,
after cleanup, as well as all of %ENV that exists when the script is run.
There are differences from the two browsers, of course, which, to me
shouldn't actually make a difference. I could post them if anyone
thinks it'd be helpful.

My script doesn't care about the browser... Very simple, very plain perl/CGI.
And, back when it was still on the *nix server, IE4/5 worked fine.
Again, I know and you know that the browser has NOTHING to do with this,
so why is the browser having something to do with this? :)
Does IIS do something stupid when it knows the browser is IE vs. Netscape?
(IIS do something stupid? Naaawwwww.)
