Dear Frank

	Thank you very much for your help. I am not quite sure the GET is
working. Perhaps I am not sure how to apply that. I have changed the
method to GET. When click on the Submit, it will get the guestbook.cgi and
display it instead of posting the form to the file....

	Could you please kindly help me? Thousand thanks for your
kindness.
