Okay, I have conceded and joined this list. I give up.
I must be missing something huge. How is one supposed to get the demo
"post.jhtml" page working in jigsaw.

I copy "post.jhtml" from the jigsaw.w3.org website and try it.
first invocation I get

________________ Submit


type my name and click Submit
result:

Method POST not allowed on this resource.



so I add org.w3c.jigsaw.frames.PostableFrame resource and get VERY
unpredictable results:

1) nothing happens, I get the same results as above.
2) it sort of works... I get output like

List of variables and values:
* name = sdfsdf

this seems odd however, because the output of post.jhtml SHOULD be

Your name is sdfsdf


Finally if I DARE to edit post.jhtml in ANY way (just add a space in the
print statement), then it breaks ENTIRELY, and all I get is:

Content-Type:



once this happens, the only way to get is working again is to delete both
resources and add them again... then I either get results like 1 & 2
listed above.

why am I having so much trouble? what am I missing?

Thanks,
