Subject Re: [C2] Possible Solution for PDF Bug with IE 5.x !??
Date Thu, 05 Jul 2001 13:15:27 GMT
Here's what I get when I load the page (my browser version is 5.50.4522.1800 with
all updates applied):

<pdf>
The following line is not visible in Internet Explorer 5.50.4522.1800 with the
Acrobat
plug-in:
Hello World!
If you use another browser or Acrobat as an external application, then you should
see a
"Hello World!" text above.
</pdf>

Now, if I point the browser somewhere else, and then hit the Back button, *then* it
fails to display the line.  Odd.  If I reload the page before going somewhere else,
then it works.  It looks like IE isn't caching the file immediately, but actually
waits until I return, and then does a GET on the URL.  Unfortunately, the file was
generated from a POST and so the data sent in that POST gets dropped.  Blech.
That's really stupid behavior.

I'd love to ditch MicroBorg, but I work for a large university and my boss has no
control over what browsers we support.  And I like working here ;-).
