Congrats.  But you really should be using one of the several fine CGI
modules on CPAN instead of reinventing the wheel yourself.  

Also there are easier ways to print out multiple lines of text in Perl
than using lots of print statements like you're doing.  One way is to
use here documents:

   print << EOT;
Content-type: text/html

<CENTER><H1>Use Post or Get</H1></CENTER>

That way's much easier to read for me.  For instance, it's now clearer
that your HTML is invalid, because you've defined your BODY *inside*
the HEAD instead of *after* the HEAD.
