So just who do the Microsoft Corp Programmers calculate they are, anyway,
ignoring such basic things as Content-type definitions?

Actually I suspected MSIE was the problem.

I won't be the one browsing to the site with a broken MSIE - just
developing the CGI for the site (a first for me) - so the helper apps only
help so much.  I'm not going to fix everyone's IE that accesses the
script!  Well, in a way I will since I guess I'll just use the PRE /PRE
tags for the portions that need to remain unmangled.
