Browser support for response 302 Found

I'm trying to write a script that will search for information, and then
return a a specific HTML page on my server. It seems that sending back a
header along the lines of:

HTTP/1.0 302 Found
URI: /thefilename.html

should work, but the two browsers that I've tried (MacMosaic and MacWeb)
both seem not to support the 302 response. Is 302 a response that many
browsers understand? I would find it very useful for returns from searches,
that don't exactly fall in the semantics of 301.

Thanks a lot!
