IE rendering problem

  • I have tested with another compression tool and found that under the following conditions, I can cause IE to not render a page correctly:

    1.  The page is delivered via SSL
    2.  The page is compressed
    3.  The page contains a meta http-equiv directive for a foreign language character set
    4.  The page contains a meta http-equiv pragma no-cache directive.  For example, the following bash script installed as a CGI should replicate this problem:


    echo "Content-type: text/html"
    echo ""

    echo "<html><head><title>Hide</title>"
    echo '<META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">'
    echo '<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1254">'
    echo "</head>"
    echo "<body>"
    echo "This is a test of the IE rendering bug"
    echo "</body>"
    echo "</html>"

    Can anybody verify this with mod_gzip as well?  Thanks!
