It isn't meant to be a web page, it's just a test page. When we used the 
old CGI method, there was an "echo.mt" script that just displayed all 
the server variables in the browser window. All web languages have a 
similar script.

Phil was showing how he converted the old CGI test script to the new 
method. The page information can be used for reference if the web 
developer needs to know the server configuration. It isn't meant to be 
used on a web site.
