They show up fine in Explorer, but Netscape shows nothing.

Answer: Why won't scipts on an Apache server not show up when viewed with Netscape.

Sometimes, Netscape will not show anything (e.g. unclosed table tags are a good place to start your search), but View->Source will. Strange but true - and a good way to debug.

What is showing up, then? Are you sure you're sending back the correct HTTP header? Make sure you're sending back a Content-Type of text/html:

use CGI qw/:standard/; print header;
Or, if you're using mod_perl:
$r->content_type("text/html"); $r->send_http_header;
