Shows source code while testing JSP with Netscape 6.10

Hi,
I have a problem here. I am in the process of testing a web application. As part of it I am testing the JSP pages in various versions of Netscape & IE.
While testing the page in Netscape 6.1, it was found that during submitting the form, instead of loading the page, the source code is randomly displayed on the browser. At times it works fine by displaying the page properly.
I had inserted the following code in JSP as suggested by someone.
<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html" %>
Still it gives the same problem. Can anyone suggest what the problem is & what could be done by to avoid this.
Thanks in advance for your advice

By "source code" do you mean HTML markup, or the Java in the JSP?
One of the first things I'd do to diagnose this is to use View Source to see what's being sent to the browser and in what way it's screwed up enough to confuse the browser.

Ofcourse, the source code meant the HTML codes that also consist of the source codes of Javascript files included in the JSP.

In that case then using View Source to see what is screwed up with the formatting of the response is definitely your first step.
From there you should be able to gather clues as to why the browser is tripping up.
