> The <html><body></body></html> is something IE and some other browsers do when the page they get is empty. I imagine it's cause their parsers freak out when there's nothing to parse.
Ah, I see.
> I hope you have something besides the [tag] stuff in your missing.html page. If you don't, that's part of the problem--404s should still have content, and if you don't create it in missing.html, you'll end up with a blank 404 page. IE might do its "friendly HTTP errors" thing, but anyone whose browser doesn't have its own built-in error pages will see nothing but blankness.
I definitely still have a full page in there. If I don't use the
[tag] it displays just fine. Even more frustrating, I get a 200 even
if I use the [tag] and see a blank page.
> For reference, i tried the single-line header, and it seems to work fine. Returns a 404 status code and all. And the rest of the content, which i left in the page, still shows up.
I don't use a standard Foundation catalog, but that [tag] should
return a 404 no matter what page it's on right?
