    CGI is processed on the Server and not on the browser. Unless your writing browser specific code in your script it should work in both browsers.

    I went to your site and after the multiple windows was unable to view all your source which is necessary to tell if any of it is browser specific. Would like to help but would have to be able to see the javascript available in your parent frame of the Quiz Window.

    Is it possible if a CGI script can be viewed in IE 4 but not in Netscape?

    I have this problem with my web page.
    The url is www.ntu.edu.sg/home2/bj7720631.

    The quiz button on the main menu of the introduction page is link to a file written by CGI script.

    It works on IE4 but not on Netscape.
    I understand that u r supposed to install the CGI scripts on to the web server's CGI-bin.

    Since I have not done so, why is it that the file can still be run perfectly in IE nut not in Netscape?

    Is there a compatibility problem between the two browsers?

    Please help.
