Though I am specifying FORM METHOD = "POST" in my HTML page, I am getting a CONTENT LENGTH = 0 in my CGI script, Checking on this I found that my environment variable REQUEST_METHOD is coming in as "GET" instead of "POST" !  This is happening when I am using IE4.0 as the browser. Can someone suggest a solution?
REGARDS,
JOHN

In your HTML code make sure you are using <FORM ACTION="<blah>" METHOD="POST"> If you dont use the "'s, IE may mistake it and default to GET. Stupid. =)
