   <question>Why is my Internet Explorer not showing PDF or VRML samples?</question>
  -  <p>This is a long-time problem with internet explorer which, illegally,
  -  reacts on URI extention rathen than returned MIME type. The only think you can
  -  do for now is to map .pdf or .wrl to Cocoon for handling, but we know that
  -  sucks. Don't worry, in the future, the sitemap proposal will allow you
  -  to work around this magically. For now, just don't use IE :)</p>
  +  <p>This is a long-time problem with internet explorer which doesn't look for
  +  the MIME type sent by the http response, but rather parsers the file extention
  +  to determine what program should open it (unlike other browsers which are much
  +  smarter). There is a trick that forces IE to look at the MIME type, this is
  +  adding a <em>'?'</em> at the end of your URI. Even if Cocoon is ignoring
  +  this, IE won't and will react on the MIME type and will trigger the right
  +  plugin/application for that content.</p>
