Check with the LiveHttp headers Firefox extension if your pages a
returning the correct header "Content-Type: text/html"?

Or, you can also check like this:
  telnet localhost 80
  GET /MyWebapp/MyPage_view.psp?eid=2 HTTP/1.0
  Host: localhost

  <empty line here ... just press ENTER>
  <... you'll receive something like ...>
  HTTP/1.1 200 OK
