Because internet explorer is a html renderer, not a perl interpreter.

But I suppose that's not terribly helpful.

The short answer is you need a web server [like apache, it's free] to accept the html post and redirect it to the perl script [via the perl interpreter], and then return the perl output to an html renderer [internet explorer, via some network connection]
