i had the same thing happen with a server running CF5 recently, no idea why,
but maybe the fact that it happens with CF pages too is a useful clue.

yes, same here. my client has a test box and live box with identical
software setups. the live box needed the protection lowered, the test box

not much help, but at least you know you're not crazy, eh?

<tip type="IIS">
Ever been tempted to use IIS "footers"?


IIS will add the footer to every file that is a part of the request. This
means calls to external CSS and javascript files will also receive the
footer, which can lead to unpredictable results.
