OK, now I'm confused.  What you are saying is that the above file 
(Cart.html) is what your script reads in, and you changed the 
Perl script to prevent that.  Now you do not see the extra GET in your 
logs, but your output doesn't have all the fancy stuff around it, 
right?  If you didn't change the JavaScript, then it still doesn't make 
sense.  I see nothing in the existing JavaScript that would cause the page 
to reload.  What does your Perl script look like?

BTW, when I ran my telnet tests your script still produced the template 
around the dynamic output, so you must not have made the changes at that 
time.  Could you check the log files to see if the were two GET entries at 
the time I was testing (Mon, 15 Dec 2003 07:49:03 GMT)?  I only sent one 
GET request, so the server only got one from me.  If there are two, then 
most likely the browsers aren't at fault.

BTWA, your script seems to output a superfluous "Content-Type" header.
