Location problem with IE4

Why does the first one return error and the second one works fine:

Error page:

Warning! There is NOTHING wrong with the content.
The problem is here :
 <a HREF="/scripts/pek.dll/test?charset=asc

it should be:

 <a HREF="/scripts/pek.dll/test?charset=asc>word...</a>

Well, sorry, no. I said there is nothing wrong with the content. This is just a problem, when I cut&paste to the exp-exc - I later noticed that some of the content is missing.

Anyway: no matter what content IE4 says "response unknown" and does nothing. That is IE4Win95Rel2
Introduction to R

R is considered the predominant language for data scientist and statisticians. Learn how to use R for your own data science projects.

I checked with MS and the say that there is a problem inherent in Rel2 that does behave like this. Coming from the horses mouth so to speak I would hazard to say that there is unfortunately nothing to be done except mail MS and let them know about the bug and wait for the next release. Alternatively for the timne being create two pages one for msie4 and another for all the other browsers.......

Sorry I can't fix it but that is MS for you,

So the answer is:

MS knows about it and they gonna fix it

That was basically what they told me when I e-mailed their support...

I would like to know more specific WHICH part of the response is invalid. As it goes they look the same according to the HTTP specification. Is it the "-" in the cookie??? I just noticed that ASP encodes it as %2D.

(I could try it, but I really cannot until Thursday. If anyone can than please do so.)
