Try changing the script from *.html to *.cgi and see if that works. If it does, and you really need to use cgi scripts with a .hmtl extension, you'll have to edit the AddHandler cgi-script .cgi line in httpd.conf, and add .html to the end. You may be better off just getting into the habit of using a .cgi extension on your scripts.
