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 '<META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">'
echo '<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1254">'
echo "This is a test of the IE rendering bug"
Can anybody verify this with mod_gzip as well? Thanks!
