Just something I observed...
Hi! I notice something about DBMan just today. In order for DBMan to recognise certain HTML tags or codes especially in Netscape 6.1, you will need to add this line in sub html_print_headers:

print "<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC \"-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0//EN\">\n";

Note that the line MUST appear after the line:

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";

I suppose this must be a Netscape 6.1 issue. How I discover this was that when i tried to add STYLE="background: #A6B7D6; font: 9pt Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" inside the <input type> tags, in I.E 5.5, it showed up correctly while in Netscape 6.1, the text field of the form became very long.

I don't know whether this is specific to my computer or is it generally true.

Would be glad if someone can verify this.Cool
Julian
