i have a field char(6) on a form in which i have specified validation i.e. >=2 characters and <=6 characters. Whenever i enter incorrect data on this field - naturally the Javascript routine will trigger an alert on the error. And after correcting the field and pressing 'Submit' button again ==> whoa! it gives u the 'form confirmation' page to signify successful submission of form content BUT there's now a netscape alert which says 'Repost form data?'....

i have already successfuly posted - i don't want to repost..

Well, i'm afraid that's the way Netscape works with POST method.
The same alert would show if you hit reload on the 'result' page.

AFAIK, your only chance is to switch to GET method for invoking your CGI - that's why most if not all the search engines work with GET method.

Rgds, julio
