Ah. Commercial host, you see; I have no control over their NT configuration,
and sometimes I suspect they don't either. Within my file, I believe I
designated it as text/html.

Actually, it worked when I renamed it "Experiment.asp", believe it or not.
It didn't dawn on me that the extension might cause the problem until I got
on the subway last night. I'm glad that it had everything to do with the
file extension.

Thanks much for your help. I really appreciate it.
