I know my problem is in one of these two lines, because the biography is always displayed to M after clicking the Topic() link. What's wrong with this topic link that's causing it?
html_doc += "<a href=?src=\ref[M];action=viewrpbio>View [M]'s RP bio.</a>"
src << browse(html_doc, "window=bioview;size=300x300;border=0;can_close=1; can_resize=1;can_minimize=1;titlebar=1")
Topic() is one of those few places where it is safe to use the dread usr. Using the link in your snippet, you want to display M's bio to usr in M's Topic() proc.

Well, what I'm doing is adding specified HTML parameters to a variable, then displaying the contents of the variable in a popup window, and the call to the topic proc is a link in that popup; my guess is that I've got who's calling it and who's being read flip-flopped.
