Seems to be what the validator says.  Is the server trying to
do something silly like serve different things to different IP

I just asked Martin on IRC - he tried it from a shell
(among other things).

<MJDuerst> duerst@validator:~$ telnet fps.boomtown.net 80

That doesn't happen from elsewhere, and I'd suspect that
whoever configured your server may be to blame.

You can validate the page with Valet or the WDG validator.
