Reading the page:

Programmable HTTP Caching and Serving


There appear some strange character sequences like ✘ and ✔.

Server says that the page is encoded in iso-8859-1; in fact, the page 
contains some UTF-8 characters, namely 2718 HEAVY BALLOT X and 2714 
HEAVY CHECK MARK, which do not appear correctly due to the wrong 
charset. Probably this is some configuration error.

HTTP header:

   HTTP/1.0 200 OK
