Hi,
In IE 5, a 404 error will result in the browser displaying its own user friendy(what browser thinks) error message. Just want to know whether this is fixed in the latest version or it is still in place living happily.
thanks,
Ramdhan Yadav K

In IE6 anyway, if you disable friendly http error messages, it displays the original 404 text.
That setting is in Tools, Options, Advanced and then there's a checkbox for "Show friendly HTTP error messages"

I don't think this was a bug. You could go to
Tools>Internet Options
Click on Advanced tab
Make sure that the option
"Show friendly HTTP error messages"
is not checked.
Click OK
