I'm using both Netscape Communicator 4.5 and lynx on linux and I get some wierd text after the outputting of character streams that have been converted from ints or longs. It appears that your conversion functions may not properly place a null value or more likely the echo function prints to much. Maybe the length isn' set right? Anyway, I have an od-c attached as well as the source that seems to cause the problem. newest apache is serving.

source from lynx piped through octal dump

I remember this one! Pretty sure it is fixed. Closing until I hear otherwise
