This should be:

although that probably isn't the problem.

Redirecting with:

Status: 302     (or other appropriate 30x values)
Location: <well-formed-absolute-URL>

is the only legitimate way of redirecting from a CGI script for any
browser.  Status: 302 should be implied by the use of Location.

Note that 302 is normally only suitable when the CGI was accessed using
a GET request.  There is a different status code if you want to redirect
to a GET from a POST.

; To UNSUBSCRIBE: Send "unsubscribe lynx-dev" to address@hidden
