Sure it's a bug but not in Lynx nor in Netscape. The bug, or
misconfiguration, is in the server. This is what the HEAD command shows:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Sat, 08 Jan 2000 18:51:18 GMT
Server: Apache/1.3.6 (Unix) PHP/3.0.12
Last-Modified: Mon, 23 Aug 1999 15:06:55 GMT
ETag: "fc0e4-2067-37c1638f"
Accept-Ranges: bytes
Content-Length: 8295
Connection: close
Content-Type: text/html
Content-Encoding: compress

Lynx and Netscape are just following what the server says the file is.
