From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.7+) Gecko/20020107 BuildID: 2002010703 This page has a text/css display in the header, and the page won't display at all. The page shows up with only the raw HTML code. The page renders properly in both IE6 and Opera 6. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. go to http://allestacia.fateback.com/index.shtml Actual Results: The page displays raw HTML code, instead of a properly rendered page. Expected Results: Getting a rendered webpage.
The server is sending the page as type text/plain. IE and Opera will look for the <html> tag and render a page as HTML anyway, but Netscape 4.x and Mozilla don't. I think there's been some discussion about this before, but I can't find the proper bug for it. Suggest this should be evangelism in any case. The site's operator should make sure their server is sending the proper MIME type for HTML files.
Confirming issue when loading sample url. However, file is correctly rendered when it's on a local drive. Tested under OS X (2002-01-07-09) and Windows ME (2002-01-07-03) builds.
