Thank you for ridiculing my efforts to understand what is at work here.
Further experimenting has shown me that the back button (in a perl script)
only works if the code for the submit button is not in a form. If it's
between <FORM> & </FORM> or under a line like:
print $co->start_form();
it won't work. This is the case with Internet Explorer.

That probably means it won't work at all with Netscape.
