We have a cgi application which sends enormous amout of html data as
parameters to a Java applet . These parameters were passed in <PARAM>  tag for
IE Broser and <EMBED> tag when send to Netscape . The cgi identified the
Client Browser  from the HTTP_USER_AGENT  env variable

When we ported this application to Oracle Web Server , the OWS doesn't
identify the "HTTP_USER_AGENT"  variable . As a result , both type of browsers
recieve only <PARAM> tag ( default) . Netscape fails to load !

As a temp fix we send both PARAM as well as EMBED tag - but given the fact
that data sent is huge ( in magnitude of 500 K) ,  the performance  is
deterioated .

Can anyone help / suggestions

Thanx for working on this in advance
