Not exactly sure how or why, but many times when I try and preview some URL, I get garbage. This has happened on several JSON preview websites as well as on my browser. Strangely this isn't all the time.
Here's an example in Notepad (downloaded minus the type=jsontext parameter) and Firefox
This can also be seen in some of the JSON viewer sites I've used before, either timing out or displaying the same garbage.
What on earth could be causing this? I'm really confused here.
EDIT: BTW, here are the HTTP headers that acompany the request:
