Problems with RAW GET

Hi,

Using libwww I am trying to write a small application that will fetch
newsheaders from sites like slashdot and such.  For this reason I'm using a
raw get of the page (slashdot and freshmeat use xml).  The platform is
Redhat 6.0 with libwww 5.2.8.  I'v attached test-source to the program.

The problem is this.  When I try to fetch the URL in the sourcecode (a
Dutch newssite), it contains strange characters in the middle of the raw
output, for example:
<img src=
19c
'../grafx/nw_letter_nieuws.gif'
When I download the same page in Netscape, it prints:
<img src='../grafx/nw_letter_nieuws.gif'
which is the correct code.  Every time I download the page, these things
appear at the same place.  When the page changes, I get different
characters at different locations.

If somebody knows what's causing this, I would really like to know.
BTW, I compile this using:
gcc -O6 `libwww-config --cflags` -Wall `libwww-config --libs` -o test
test.c

Kind regards,

                Mark Wormgoor
