I have an application that opens a window when a link is clicked, I need the page that opens to refresh the page with the link that opened it.  The only catch is that I can't use javascript because I have to be netscape 4 compliant.  Can anyone help?

eg :

<BODY onunload="opener.window.location.reload(true)">  

<input type="button" name="Close Window" value="Close Window" onClick="opener.window.location.reload(true);window.close()">

Sorry, not trying to take any of the deserved points from anandkp but just wanted to back him up.  JavaScript works asolutely fine under Netscape 4.06 (First Y2K version.) Use it every day.
