  I'm confused by what you mean "this type of fragment" -- there's
nothing special going on here.  The first character is a lower case
"L", not the digit "1", in case that's hard to tell.

  This must be a Mac-specific thing; I don't know what this is about.
Do MSIE and Netscape use different file types for HTML documents on
the Mac?  (Well, I *do* remember that there are file type codes on the
Mac, I just don't know what Netscape and MSIE have to do with that.)
