The program below does a fair number of things but the issue I'm having is with the web server.  In Firefox it works perfectly, exactly how I want it to.  When the form is submitted the same page reloads and all pins read/write correctly.  In Chrome and Safari I get a blank page after the form is submitted.  In Internet Explorer it sends me back to the root page after the form is submitted.  In all cases the POST data is successfully sent to the Arduino but I am wanting the browser to stay on the same page.  Thoughts?

I've run the resulting HTML source code through a validator and cleared up any errors I got there but I still get the same results with the various browsers.

I'm not sure if this is an HTML issue or a webserver code issue but I've been banging my head against this for days and haven't found anything to resolve the issue.

My current code is below. (chopped out mostly irrelevant portions due to character limit, attached .ino file instead) Thanks in advance.

 * username = user
 * password = user
