Actually, the "<!DOCTYPE" part is absolutely _required_ to be a valid HTML document. The way that this whole thing works in every browser except IE is that the server tells the browser what type of data it's sending and the browser acts accordingly. This server is telling us that it's sending text/plain data (HTML is text/html). IE shows the page because it violates the quite clear rule that the server determines the data type -- IE ignores the server type and scans the file trying to decide the type on its own... Quite often this leads to serious problems, as it happens. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 133653 ***
