Archived from groups: microsoft>public>frontpage>client (more info?)

I have a web site page that I added a FP Form - One Line Text Box to.

When I publish the site and try the Form submission and after I click
the submit button I get the normal Confirmation page stating what was
sent. On this page at the top I get the following text:

Content- Type: text/html; charset=windows-1252

I made up a special Confirmation page and this same text appears at the
top of the page when I do a submit.

I would like to get rid of this erroneous text. Does anyone know how I
do this ?

Thank you,
Paul
Happy Holidays

Hi Paul,

Looks like you may have accidentally removed some tags.

What you see should appear in HTML as
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">

You copy this into Note pad, then copy from Notepad to paste into HTML/Code
view.
Just highlight the problem view in HTML view and paste this over it.

That looks like a meta tag that appears to have lost its syntax.
Look for the line in the <head> section of the page in HTML or Code view.

The correct version of the line is
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">

It is also possible that the web server itself is malfunctioning and sending
incomplete or wrong HTTP headers with the page, or that there may be other
errors in the <head> section, a link to the confirmation page will help with
diagnosis.
