[thelist] Come on: Windows 2000 and IE 5.5 (form bugs)

I had a similar bug once in one of my pages, and it turned out that the form
submission was happening twice due to some bad javascript. Specifically, I
think it was that f.submit() in your javascript without a return(false)
allows the form to submit twice (which would be a bug, I would say)

<quote>.... WHen I test this form in Windows 2000 with IE
5.5 I get two e-mail sent out instead of one like the servlet is written.  I
know it is not the servlet because i test the same form on Windows 2000 with
Netscape and it works fine.</quote>
  I have also tested it on a MAC, Windows NT with IE and Netscape.  ANy idea
to what is going on?  Right now we have it just bypass or block the first
submit and this causes the user to have to push the back arrow and resubmit.
  Once the user has used the form more than once the problem doesn't occur.
Any idea?
