On my HPUX system, the web500gw 2.0 beta was generating broken HTTP that was
confusing Microsoft's Internet Explorer (it would print out the HTTP protocol
header information and not parse the HTML). I had to apply the following patch
to web500gw.c to fix this:

< fprintf(stderr, "Content-length = %i\n", content_length);

> /*        fprintf(stderr, "Content-length: %i\n", content_length); */
> /* cccd */
< ExpiresXXX: %s\r\n\
> Expires: %s\r\n\
