Hi, bug # 10070 says it's closed, however this problem still exists. I will explain:

When a user is behind a firewall or a proxy, a compressed page is often served to him with gibrish or broken html source code. 

If the page is displayed fine and you refresh it, it ALWAYS returns a broken HTML output. If you look at the page source, it appears fine. But the actual page is opened with the <header></header> HTML content outputted on screen and thus not working (css, javascript, etc).

To reiterate: this only happens with Proxy servers.

Tested and always repeated with IE 5.5, IE 6.0. Doesn't happen with Netscape 4.7

Can you test this with the latest RC ( or a CVS-version? 

BTW, if this only happens with certain browsers, it might not be a PHP-problem, but a browser-problem.
