I don't know what the exact problem is, but you have a link on your
site that looks lik
<A HREF="/cob\bid.nsf/(addendumwww)/E7E11238DF126EA3882571BC00616F45?OpenDocument">

Notice the backslash, which is getting translated into %5C in the URL.
 It seems like Lotus domino is handling this differently than apache.
I'm not sure who is right, but in either case, using a backslash in
the URL is not a good idea.
