Mozilla RC1 This site just displays the <meta> tag as text. This URL is built into all DirectTV-DSL gateways as the default adddress for the membership site. (Browse to 10.5.1.2 (the modem), click on the "Membership Site" link.) Apparently, other browsers (IE, maybe ns4.x, maybe Opera, etc) consider the <META> to be in the head. This is probably both a 4xp/ie parity issue and a evangelism bug. They shouldn't do it, perhaps we should handle it. This is what that site returns when I telnet and do "GET /Default.asp HTTP/1.0": HTTP/1.1 200 OK Server: Microsoft-IIS/5.0 Date: Sat, 11 May 2002 06:23:27 GMT Last-Modified: Fri, 03 May 2002 03:42:46 GMT Connection: Keep-alive Content-Length: 56 <META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="0;URL=/index.jsp">
The response purports to be a HTTP 1.1 response, but it lacks the Content-Type header. I think the content doesn't go to the HTML parser at all. (I think this should be evang.)
