it's fine. i see exactly the same content as when i fetch the page
manually or with wget.

it's starting to sound like a locale/charset problem. what's your $LANG
and $SUPPORTED?. on my rh7.3 machine (the one i use most) i have:
[johnc at dropbear ~]$ set|egrep 'LANG|SUPPORTED'
the default for rh9 is to use utf-8:
[johnc at taipan ~]$ egrep 'LANG|SUPPORTED' /etc/sysconfig/i18n
i've removed utf-8 because it's known to break a few things. i can't
test the page in question on that box because it's my web/mail server
and doesn't have X installed (and even if it did, it's 20km away and
i'm only on a 56k dialup).
if your $LANG includes utf-8, can you try changing it to see if it makes
