User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.0.3705)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.0.2) Gecko/20021216

The code is displayed for this CGI script ( http://kiamo.com/cgi-bin/AIM.cgi?
display ) rather than formatting it properly.  I am sending the 
header "Content-type:text/html" followed by 2 new lines as directed by the 
specs.  The page works fine in Internet Explorer, but does not work in ANY 
tested versions of Mozilla on Linux or Windows.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://kiamo.com/cgi-bin/AIM.cgi?display
Actual Results:  
The site displays code.  It doesn't display the web page like it should.

Expected Results:  
Shown the web page like a web page, not like code.  Internet Explorer works 
just like it should on the page.

We've tried it on many machines running Linux or Windows and using many 
Mozilla builds.  I tried sending more specific header, but it still didn't 
work.  Once again, Internet Explorer displays the site with no problems.
Headers sent by the server:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Fri, 24 Jan 2003 06:18:28 GMT
Server: Apache/1.3.26 (Unix) PHP/4.2.2 mod_gzip/
<br>E-mail the admin with this error or something...Content-type: text/html
<P>You broke it!  Or rather just caused an error... maybe your stuff was too
long.  (Max: 1024, you: 0)
Connection: close
Content-Type: text/plain

Note that the Content-Type being sent is text/plain (and that the script's
attempt to send it as text/html is munged by some sort of error message).

Given those headers the rendering is correct (and IE's is a well-known bug).
