Well, no. It could easily be a character set issue. Maybe they're using
the windows character set in their "html" documents and MSIE would default
to cp1252 and Apache is defaulting to iso8859-1. Without being given an
example of the page that's causing problems, it's impossible to diagnose.
"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon
the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince
himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
