I know I may look like a rookie but what is the difference between "POST"
and "GET"?

        If your server doesn't allow POST requests, it's easy to make
htsearch use
        GET requests instead. Just edit your search.html file to change the
line:

        <form method="post" action="/cgi-bin/htsearch">

        to:

        <form method="get" action="/cgi-bin/htsearch">

        The follow-up forms in common/*.html seem to use the GET method
already.
        If you changed these to POST on your system, you'll need to change
them
        back to GET as well.
