@haschek tested IE7 and IE8. the linkeddataserver has problems with the mimetype requests IE7+8 sends (this is known also for lod2.eu)

Here is the german issue description: "Desweiteren funzt die Content Negotiation nicht wirklich, entweder schickt der IE keinen korrekten accept header zwecks accept type, es gibt einen Bug beim auswerten, oder die Content Negotiation ist zu hart eingestellt, was die relativen Werte angeht. Also ein Aufruf von aksw.org/Resource führt im IE irgendwie immer zu aksw.org/Resource.ttl - das Problem existiert sicher auch auf anderen Seiten, die mit der OW site extension betrieben werden."

IE8 is soooo stupid:

image/gif, image/jpeg, image/pjpeg, image/pjpeg, application/x-shockwave-flash, application/vnd.ms-excel, application/vnd.ms-powerpoint, application/msword, /

So, let's create an image of the requested site using a webservice and send it back :)

That'd be appropriate I think. Can we render jQuery animations into an animated GIF?

we should redirect all IE users to the appropriate shrinktheweb.com image link :)
