.com - HTTP Header includes two entries following CHARSET
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030711 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030711 The web server at http://members.aol.com is serving: Content-Type: text/html; charset=Shift_JIS,ISO-8859-1 in the HTTP header. As near as I can tell, 'charset' should only ONE charset token. This is confusing mozilla when rendering otherwise W3C compliant pages. For example: http://members.aol.com/rontilby/ Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.enter: http://members.aol.com/rontilby in the mozilla address bar 2.The page won't display in the browser. 3. Actual Results: The page won't display, or (in my specific case) it is downloaded and then displayed in the AOL browser. Expected Results: page should display normally. This problem also causes the W3C HTML Validator to reject pages fed from members.aol.com
I'm not sure whether should (yet) be confirmed as an Tech Evang bug when it's an open browser bug at present. See bug 210229.
Depends on: 210229
Apparently Mozilla was formerly fault-tolerant of this spec. violation, and has regressed. If the HTTP Spec. allows for only one character set to be specified in the Content-Type header, then AOL should be evangelized whether or not Mozilla is fault-tolerant regarding this particular issue. This problem with AOL's servers is causing the w3c's html validator to fail otherwise standards compliant pages.
Those are both AOL sites. Lets dupe and evange them if they decide it is a bigger issue although I don't know how much luck we will have with AOL. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 210229 ***

No longer depends on: 210229
Resolution: --- → DUPLICATE
The problem in Mozilla has been fixed, but AOL still needs to be evangelized because they're serving invalid HTTP Headers, and it makes Mozilla think that all pages from members.aol.com are using the 'Shift JIS' character set.

Resolution: DUPLICATE → ---
Ron, please complain to AOL as a member since you will have more effect than I will.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
