  What do you mean by "standard Gopher client"?  Because I tried three
different gopher clients:

	* Lynx
	* iGopher (on the iPad)
	* custom written gopher client

and each of them had no problems with the page listed.  I see a bunch of
IFDB entry links, followed by some text and a bullet list, followed by some
more text.
