Thanks for all the help, but I still can't get Jacqueline's CGI example 
to run in OS X on my iBook.  I keep getting a "500 Internal Server 
Error", which apparently means that a script crashed.

I think I have allocated execution permission to all of the mt files.  
Lots of x's.  Here is a listing from Terminal:

-rwxr-xr-x  1 gregory  admin      373  5 Sep 15:24

I have also over-written Jacqueline's original mt files in order to 
ensure they have Unix line endings.  I used Dave Cragg's technique (put 
field "cgi" into url ("binfile:" & <filename>)) and Frank Engel's 
technique (save with TextEdit as plain text).  I did this with the, and files.

I greatly appreciate all your help so far, and any other suggested 
fixes would also be much appreciated because getting this to work would 
is a critical part of my next projects.
