How it should look

This is how it looks in Netscape.
It's a networking issue... Just changing the HTTP version to 1.0 in advanced
prefs (Netscape 4 only supports 1.0) makes the site work fine...

At a guess, the server is screwing up the chunked encoding, but someone who
knows that stuff should look at this.
