Have you by chance modified the HTML that makes up the output of an
htdig query? The reason I ask is, Netscape has had a long-standing
"feature" wherein nothing will be rendered/displayed if your HTML code
is missing an end-table (</table>) tag where there should be one. Could
this be what's wrong? Try submitting a query to htdig and wait for
"nothing" to come back. View the source to the "empty" page. If I'm
understanding your problem correctly, I kinda suspect the answer to it
will be evident somewhere near the bottom of the code....
