Content of a pop-up window not shown. I suspect it's a JavaScript interpreting issue.

Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030428 Mozilla Firebird/0.6

In the page a small question appears when entering the site.
After answering "Yes", "Ok" or "Sí" (whatever applies), a pop up window appers
showing headlines information.

Using Mozilla, the information is not being properly decodified so JavaScript
code is displayed instead of the content. You can compare the behaviour of this
page with Internet Explorer to see the desired result.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to
2. Answer "Ok", "Yes" or "Sí" to the question that appears in a small question
box. (Question text: "¿Quieres ver las últimas noticias?")
Note: First time you enter the site, you may be asked for your location. I
cannot reproduce it now, but you may skip this question and go to the important one.

Actual Results:  
A pop up window appears with JavaScript code

Expected Results:  
A list of last-minute headlines should appear.
This is not likely to be a JS engine bug.  Over to browser-general; please do
not confirm unless you can explain WHY the site sends us bogus info (cookie bug?
 Bad browser sniffing on the site?  etc).

This is definitely a document.write() bug, but probably a dupe.  When I have 
javascript enabled I get this:

function status2() 
document.write('QueryString - did - Es vacio o invalido..');

When js is disabled I see the page just fine.  There's a lot of 
document.write'n material here, so that's my assumption.  Unfortunately I can't 
download the necessary external script files through the Address bar, and I 
don't have time to try harder :)
