Re: the none rendering of the "offical" site in Mozilla. It's probably because the Content-Type being sent back by the http server to the client looks like:


Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1


It really should be:


Content-Type: text/html


Mozilla is being told it's a plain text document and so just print it to screen, whilst IE seems to be ignoring it and rendering it as HTML.

It's not really a "problem" with Mozilla. Mozilla is just doing what the server is telling it to do. If you look at the http headers (I'm using a unix util called dog) you'll see that the server is telling the client that the data is text/plain. The headers also reveal that the web server is Apache. The server needs to be configured, so when it server shtml pages, it sends: Content-Type: text/html in the http headers. Looking at one of the Apache server I look after this can be done in one of two ways:


1. change the default type value in httpd.conf to html: e.g.


DefaultType text/html


2. (this is how my Apache is configured). Add shtml to the following lines in the httpd.conf file:


DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.shtml index.php index.php4 index.php3 index.phtml index.cgi

AddType text/html .shtml

AddHandler server-parsed .shtml


I got the above three lines bt just grep-ing for shtml. I think the AddType is the most important.


After the httpd.conf file as been edited the web server will need to be restarted.
