MSIE plug-in and cgi scripts

 [1/2] from: hallvard:ystad:helpinhand at: 10-Sep-2001 9:13

Hi folks I've installed the rebol plug-in for internet explorer, and mostly find it works just fine. But when I open a page that is entirely constructed by a rebol script, and the URL ends with ".r", MSIE believes it is supposed to execute some rebol stuff, and a rebol window pops up to tell me the rebol header is missing. An easy workaround is to rename the file so that it ends with, say ".reb" or ".rbl", but that really shouldn't be necessary. The error occures only if I print the content-type output from the rebol script to be "text/plain", not if it is "text/html". Shouldn't the plug-in interpret only content of type "text/x-rebol-plugin"? Why does it bother looking at the file name? ~H

Sorry, I realize now that this is due to Windows (and not specifically internet explorer) trying to execute anything ending with .r as a rebol script. That's dumb. ~H Du skrev (Monday 10.09.2001, kl. 09.13):
