in reply to CGI.pm help with IE browser

What You are trying to use is a non-standard, Netscape specific externsion to the HTTP-protocol; IE can't (obviously) handle this adressing technique. What You shoud do is to set the target in the startform call
print $q->startform(-action=>"whatewer.cgi", -TARGET=>"Top");
Another way to do it is with javascript:
<script language=javascript type="text/javascript"> function speciallink(new) { parent.frames["top"].document.location = new; } // --> </script>
Call it with
onClick="speciallink('Whatever.cgi')"
(The script can be used on anything that supports the onClick event)

I hope this will help ; )
