Subject Re: PDF display under Tomcat 4.1.29
Date Sat, 03 Jan 2004 03:08:45 GMT
Bug?  4.1.29 will send back the header:
  Content-Type: application/pdf; charset=ISO-8859-1
which can be confusing to a lot of browsers :).  This is fixed in the CVS
code, and it is likely that 4.1.30 will come out in a couple of weeks.

There is quite a lot of discussion of this in the archives, if you want to
search for more info.
