can't load a cpp file
Date: August 21, 2001 01:32AM

as you probably know, IE plays games where it looks at the url in addition
to content-type, but
http://www.boost.org/libs/regex/example/snippets/regex_match_example.cpp
loads up just fine as text in IE.

in k-meleon it does nothing -- i mean it refuses (without an error) to do
anything at all with the url.

in the new version a "save as..." box comes up, still not very useful when you want to view it as text... bitch at the sysadmin smiling smiley

It is true that the server sends back "Content-Type: application/octet-stream"
for this url.
nevertheless, it seems like whatever IE does in this respect should be mimic'd.
i'm not sure how IE decides that an .exe is to be downloaded, while a .cpp
is to be displayed; perhaps it actually looks at the content itself to guess.
or maybe it has a builtin list of "text-like" suffixes.

on a similar note, i know of a server that had been inadvertantly set to a default type of text/plain instead of text/html (since corrected)... k-meleon displayed the html source for the page, taking it at it's word, but IE somehow 'knew' to display an html page... i don't really know about the advisability of trying to mimic the non-standard behavior of IE, but i guess it's apt to be an issue...

maybe the user could choose between a 'smart' mode and a 'literalist' mode...

i dunno.
