Is there some way to detect that a browser can not handle the gzip
encoding so that at the minimum, a proper error page can be displayed?
I would like to upgrade my browser, unfortunately the release date of
Mozilla seems to have slipped by a few years.
The 4.x release of Navigator was not ported to OpenVMS, as it was expected
that Mozilla's would be following it very quickly.
I have not yet tried the beta Mozilla release(s).
