The web site does not display in HTML, instead it shows up as plain text HTML
code, this web site works fine in IE. The web site I believe an ASP file, that
is done to circumvent AOL's caching system. Mozilla should be able to understand
that this is a ASP file that is worded fine and display it approietly.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Goto www.drryan.net
2.View plain text code
3.

Actual Results:  
I read over the plain text

Expected Results:  
It should have correctly displayed the page as IE or other browsers do, arrange
text properly, format text etc. 

This web site I believe is an ASP file.

The page with the code is a frame: http://www.structive.org/drryan/index.asp

That page is sent as "text/plain":

Tech evang or invalid??
-> Tech Evang

The server sends the wrong mime-type and this works in IE but this is a bug in IE.
Asp doesn't matter because the browser gets only HTML and in this case text.

INCOMPLETE due to lack of activity since the end of 2009.

Sorry for the bugspam; filter on "NO MORE PRE-2010 TE BUGS" to remove.
