As far as server push things go, remember that IE doesnt really like pushing things. See (Re: Generating a 'please wait' message
and push_handler and status page question.
I know, in theory
you could flush the output ($| = 1;
(see your replies above)) and the browser will display stuff as it gets it. But I know IE sometimes waits until the page is complete, then shows said content. Oh well. Just my $.02. Hope it helps.
