That's irrelevant to's a parameter to your applet, not to the
server, unless you've specifically configured your server to look for
that. My guess is one of the arguments your passing in the URL are
telling your application to set the content-encoding, and it's doing
it wrong, in which case no-one here can help you. If you have strong
reason to believe that your application is not responsible, then get
back to us and let us know why you think that.
