Problem in servlet wrt browser

I have a jsp page that contains a BLOB object for binary data. The enctype of the form containing the BLOB object is
declared as : enctype="multipart/form-data".
There is also a program that parses the form and stores the
parameters in hash table.
The problem is:
In case of the browser being Internet Explorer there is no
problem but in case of the browser being Netscape Navigator
there is a null pointer exception on Post.
Actually in the latter case the "contenttype" parameter of
the form comes as null. But the same does not happen
in case of Internet Explorer.
I would like to know the cause of contenttype being finite
in IE and null in NetscapeNavigator.
