The server is checking the user-agent. Changing it to Mozilla for instance gets a page. (These come up occasionally, and are not
a technical problem, but a lapse of ettiquete).

And the double fault (missing custom page) is just plain incompetence,
although very common incompetence.

Incidentally, people should use subjects like "Lynx Rejected 406 Not Acceptable; Mozilla Succeeds", rather than "Help" or "BUG Report", when submitting presumed bug reports to lists and forums. They also shouldn't accuse software of bugs when they clearly know that the the fault lies in the web server.

Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
