I'v programmed a cgi script with some inlibe table code. But when i execute the script, the table or it's contents are'nt displayed in netscape/explorer. When i press "view source" in netscape , i have the full code inside it. If i then copy it's contents in memory and then load it in Frontpage, the table is prefect.

Can someone help me...

You've got a syntax "irregularity" in your table.  There are places where IE (and Frontpage) and Navigator don'tdo the same thing with a syntax error.  To test test this, save your "View Source" notepad to a file, and then load that file into Netscape.  If it's OK, then your headers are bad coming back from the server.  If it's not OK, look for a misplaced HTML tag, an unclosed <td> or <tr>  (by unclosed I mean you have a mismatch between <td> and </td>).  There are also potential problems with nesting problems, like <td> <tr> </td> </tr>
