Subject: RE: Tech: ABC converter help
Griska, But what has changed is a mystery.

As of last night, I'm trying to help out and can try to explain the problem as I see it.

The code (for historical folkinfo reasons) is split between a user front end and a behind the scenes converter. The front end makes a http post to the converter and displays the returned html. I'm pretty sure that is where the error message is coming from.

With this set up, I can run Simon's front end code on my own local server and post to Simon's behind the scenes converter at mandolintab. Doing this is working perfectly but something seems to get mangled when the front end code runs on mandolintab..

I'm hoping we will be able to find some configuration difference between the servers that will account for this.

If all else fails, we can try to eliminate this split and hidden post and things should appear the same to users. While not an enormous task it's not something to "get done in 5 minutes" either.
