Can't submit a form.

hello
my script is submitting POST-data to a site
(its not my first script, i've done these before many times (include parsing scripts) but this one is tough)

so the problem is i'm submitting a form with firefox
and in firebug i see WHAT exactly i'm submitting
then
when i do EXACTLY the same with my script
it's simply not working
so i have the question to pro's:
WHYYYYYYYYYYYY Smilie

there is one thing.. the data have about 20 parameters and some of them:
Code:
__EVENTARGUMENT
__EVENTTARGET
__EVENTVALIDATION
__LASTFOCUS
__VIEWSTATE
>datahere<

can change their position in the block of post-data
they can be like:
Code:
__LASTFOCUS
>datahere<
__EVENTARGUMENT
__EVENTTARGET
__EVENTVALIDATION
__VIEWSTATE

or:
Code:
__LASTFOCUS
__EVENTARGUMENT
__EVENTTARGET
__VIEWSTATE
>datahere<
__EVENTVALIDATION

or somewhere else

and i think maybe javascript doing this somehow but dunno if this can be a problem
the whole site looks like writting by a monkey. rly. have bugs in JS and in HTML also.
there's also the key which is changing when loading this page but i'm catching it

PS plx don't put this topic to "web-programming" last answer there was a week ago Smilie

What is $host ? What is $content?

I'm not sure this looks right:
Code:
length$content

Code:
length $content

Code:
length$content

Code:
length $content

you can't try it by yourself there's authorization
length$content works fine for all times
there's no mistakes in code, i've done it many times
my question was - why there some options changing places in data?
and why it working fine in browser and not working in script?

btw this __EVENTDATA some shit from ASP.net
some protection mechanism maybe
