  +=head1 Internet Explorer disregards your ErrorDocuments
  +
  +Many users stumble upon a common problem related to MS Internet
  +Explorer: if your error response, such as when using C<ErrorDocument
  +500> or C<$r-E<gt>custom_response>, is too short (which might often be
  +the case because you aren't very inspired when writing error
  +messages), Internet Explorer completely disregards it and replaces it
  +with its own standard error page, even though everything has been sent
  +correctly by the server and received by the browser.
  +
  +The solution to this is quite simple: your content needs to be at
  +least 512 bytes. Microsoft describes some solutions to this I<problem>
  +here: http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q294/8/07.ASP
  +. The easiest solution under Perl is to do something like this:
  +
  +  # write your HTML headers
  +  print "<!-- ", "_" x 513, " -->";
  +  # write out the rest of your HTML
  +
  +Effectively, your content will be long enough, but the user won't
  +notice any additional content. If you're doing this with static pages,
  +just insert a long enough comment inside your file to make it large
  +enough, which will have the same effect.
