When an Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.0 HTTP client sends a Content-Range header or a Content-Type header to IIS, it is possible that when IIS adds its Content-Range header, it may improperly place the header in the body of the HTTP response.

This behavior only occurs if the outgoing headers were modified by an IIS ISAPI filter, which may occur if, for example, you use the IIS security tool, URLscan, to remove the "Server:" header.

The problem was actually caused by .NET adding inappropriate headers into the HTTP reponse.  No points awarded.
