Re: Apache serving files weirdly? (solved)
Well, thanks Colin. You solved the problem.
I was Apache's mod_gzip that was causing the trouble. the mod_gzip website
has no indication that this would cause a problem... but oh well. This is
important information... perhaps we should contact the owner and tell
him/her to put it in the documentation or website?
Anyway, thanks :-)
