Gags, this happens at quite a few sites, let me know if you need more test cases.
I think the problem may be the charset attribute of the Content-type header line sent by their HTTP server. It returns: Content-Type: text/html; charset=US-ASCII and in the xterm window where I launched apprunner the following message appears: DocLoaderFactory: Unable to create ContentViewer for command=view, content-type=text/html; charset=US-ASCII Tested on Linux (RH 6.0) build 1999073108 FYI: $ telnet www.nvidia.com 80 Trying 22.214.171.124...
