jdk 1.1.7 on Linux (blackdown), Netscape Navigator 4.06 or higher or 
Netscape Communicator 4.5 or higher on Linux and WinN
Running an applet within the Netscape browser versions named above 
cannot submit "POST" parameters to a servlet URL.

Running the same applet within HotJava Browser 3.0 or MS Explorer(WIN NT) 4.0x
with the java com. kit works well.

The problem is based on to the Content-type linked with a HttpRequest send 
by different browsers. Netscape browsers set as content-type "multipart/form-data",
other browsers set as content-type "application/x-www-form-urlencoded".

However, Jserv requires the content-type "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
in order to decode "POST" - Parameter (see org.apache.jserv.JServConnection.java, l
ine 768).
Fix: change the code that netscape content-types are allowed.
