That means you put the line in the wrong place.  It must appear in the
CGI Header, not the document body.  See previous question.

It's also possible that you didn't print a header at all, or had a blank
line or other noise before or in the header, but that the HTTPD has
corrected this error for you (servers which correct your errors may give
rise to the "works on A not on B" phenomenon).   See previous question.
