    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The behaviour of Internet Explorer SP2  *
    *                      has changed in comparison to Internet   *
    *                      Internet Explorer SP1 in a way that     *
    *                      influences Buffer Pool Analysis Object  *
    *                      Placement reports in a negative way.    *
    *                      The partial reports of Object Placement *
    *                      were opened as raw html instead of inte *
    *                      interpreted html since the file names   *
    *                      of the partial reports do not end with  *
    *                      ".htm" or ".html" despite the content   *
    *                      consists of correct html. In IE SP2     *
    *                      the extention of the file name has an   *
    *                      influence on the presentation of the    *
    *                      file's content. If a file does not      *
    *                      have the ending ".htm" or ".html" the   *
    *                      content will be displayed as raw        *
    *                      html instead of interpreted html, e.g.  *
    *                      "<title>great<title>" will be           *
    *                      displayed instead of "great".           *
    *                      Unfortunately the partial reports       *
    *                      of object placement had not one the     *
    *                      now required extensions.                *

Temporary fix

Comments

  • The function "Object Placement" was changed accordingly to
    generate these extensions for the partial reports now and
    therefore being compatible with both service packs of
    Internet Explorer.
