|What informations de you get when requesting http://pliant.cx/pliant/fullpliant/status.html
I mean I need the lines starting with:
Your browser is identifying itself as: ...
Pliant interpreted it as ... release ...

|Your browser is identifying itself as:
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; AOL 4.0; Windows 98)
Pliant interpreted it as ie release 5.5
Your brower will receive an uncompressed answer.

|IE 5.5 should be ok.
Might be a problem with the cache: you should clear it.
What is more surprising for me is that your browser does not agree to
receive gzip encoded HTML pages (it makes browsing much faster).
I've upgraded the status page in pliant.cx so that it can now display
Could you follow the 'more details about your current connection to the HTTP server'
link, then tell me what you have below 'Here is what your browser said'

|Here is what your browser said:

image/pjpeg, application/vnd.ms-powerpoint, application/msword, */*

|Your browser seems to accept no compression !
You should switch to a browser accepting compression because it saves
very much bandwidth (or if you prefer, it makes the available bandwidth
look much larger, so pages load much faster).
A brower accepting compression will display a line:
What's surprising me is IE 5.5 not accepting compression.
Maybe you are using a proxy, and the proxy is desabling compression.
If you are using a proxy (or your ISP is silently using a proxy), it might
also be the explaination of your browsing troubles.
Any idea from Michel ?

|I had this problem and it desapears when clearing out the cache of Ie5, peoples has the rule to systhematicaly disable thir explorer cache.
But I'm now sure that Ie5 have an other blind cache wher it preserves certain information. If it's the problem prefere Netscape to IE5.
