I found that Netscape ignored the new data, IE did not. Not sure which one 
to blame for being different....LOL. This solves that problem more 
elegantly that I did.

This didn't work from me either. Browsers just seemed to ignore it. sigh.

I did get this solved on Friday - my references to the files was fubar'd 
and therefore the script could not stream a file that it could not find. 
Oh, well.
