PHP websit template not working with Netscape for Linux

Our PHP website template works for nearly all browsers (at least on Windows). We've tested with MSIE 5, Opera 5, Netscape 4.75, Netscape 6. However, there's a problem with Netscape on Linux (don't know what version as I could not find it on Netscape running on Linux) Linux sys we tested with uses RedHat (ver. 7 I think)

When requesting the template file, Netscape on Linux just closes on loading file. No errors given and I've browsed over the template files and they seem syntactically correct. Could it be a Netscape for Linux bug or does our template have problems? Below are URLs to template code:

Problem files:
http://www.engr.sjsu.edu/daluu/tmp/index.txt
http://www.engr.sjsu.edu/daluu/tmp/template.txt
Template.txt is the culprit it seems. Index.txt just references it.

Working (under Linux) older version:
http://www.engr.sjsu.edu/daluu/tmp/index_old.txt
This file has the template.txt code already embedded in it but is an older version. Pretty much similar though.

I doubt it is a PHP issue specifically.

As far as Netscape is concerned it will just be getting HTML source.

Is there any conditional source that specifically recognises Netscape on Linux?

If not, and the source generated would be the same as for Netscape on Windows then try loading the page in Netscape on Windows, and then look at the generated source.

You may want to post that source (or a link to it).

My gut feeling is that it'll be a specific Netscape on Linux bug, but without seeing the output it's hard to know.

We are trying to gear our template to support most browsers and so far, it is at least acceptable. However, we do not use any conditional checks for browser type to send a tailored version to the user's browser. The template loads ok in Netscape for Windows. Just not on Linux. And it works in Mozilla and Konqueror browsers for Linux though.

I'll look into viewing the source under Netscape for Windows. You can see the source at: (which I already posted above)
