      Description

      There have been reports that DERBY html documentation does not render on Internet Explorer 8 and 9.

      Kristian reports on IE8
      Just tried with IE8, and with the Getting Started manual I get this when I view the source:
      """
      <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
      <HTML><HEAD>
      <META content="text/html; charset=utf-8" http-equiv=Content-Type></HEAD>
      <BODY></BODY></HTML>
      <snipped garbage as to not put it in jira>

      Not sure how that last line will turn out in your email clients, but it is indeed garbage and you can see that the body-tag is empty. Nothing is rendered in the browser. We are using frames though - that's not exactly state-of-the-art... We are also using the wrong DOCTYPE. I'm suspecting that the HTML is invalid too, but haven't checked.

      On IE9 I had heard that the reference HTML manual prints garbage.
