Easy : that's sent with the text/plain MIME-type, not text.html as it should be.
Error in the server-configuration.

> IE displays the page with no problem though....

Currently IE gets it wrong and Mozilla gets it right. Microsoft intends to
follow Mozilla's lead and do the same thing as Mozilla does with their SP2
update. See their SP2 changes doc for more info:

"In Service Pack 2 for Windows XP, Internet Explorer MIME sniffing will never
promote a file of one type to a more dangerous file type. For example, files
that are received as plain text but that include HTML code will not be promoted
to the HTML type, which could contain malicious code."
