Subject Re: [users@httpd] Weird gibberish when loading a gif in Firefox, but it's fine in IE...
Date Wed, 19 Jul 2006 23:26:24 GMT

There's no content-type being set in the header... this is all i have in the head:

<link href="/css/style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
thanks for your help

I'd guess IE reads the file as it's coming in, and figures out it's content type.

Is your script sending a Content-type: in the header?  I'm betting it's being defaulted
to text/plain by either Apache or Firefox.
