It depends of how you actually access to that page. Which navigator are you using?

If you have a WAP emulator the MIME types of web server should be configured for .wml give the header "application/wml" or somethin similar.

Actually a wap gateway between INTERNET and celullar networks encodes the plain text into binary or .wmlc so check out if your web server is doing that actually.

Hope that helps.
