The following web page cannot be viewed properly by Firefox:

When I try to view it on Firefox (3.5.5), the source code of the page shows up. OTOH, it can be viewed by IE8. What could be the reason?

same problem for Chrome and Opera. IE6 and 7 are also fine. – Molly7244 Dec 7 '09 at 20:46
I sent an email to them to correct the error. It is strange that a governmental site has those kind of errors... – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Dec 7 '09 at 20:59
All depends on who is doing the editing and what they are using to edit the document. This is normally the case if MS-Word was used to create /edit the document. – ricbax Dec 7 '09 at 21:23

This is the reason:

<HTML xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml" xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" xmlns="">

Try changing the doctype and schema to a W3C standard and you should get a viewable page.
