Missing HTTP header on direct link MUCK books?

This Web interface for MUCK documents is a great idea, but for all of these building documents the frame contains nothing but raw (unrendered) HTML. Is it possible the script is failing to put an HTTP header (for example, "Content Type: text/html") on the first output line?

Sadly, it no longer works

Sadly, it no longer works because a recent trend in browser security blocks cross-domain iframes. I've had no time to come up with an alternate approach, so its been sitting there all mangled for a few months. :(.

Sorry I missed it

It sounds like a neat feature that came and went during my "sabbatical" away from MUCK University. I didn't think I'd been away that long.

Do the building guides get updated very often? If not, what about putting copies of the raw text here on the Web site? Working through the tutorials interactively on the MUCK is great the first time, but having a static copy on the Web would be very useful for future reference and review.

By the way, very nice job on the MUCK U. and Narnia MUCK Web site face-lifts.

Any objections ...

... if I implement my own suggestion?

A sample: http://papa.sdf.org/nexus/mucku/building-1.txt

If there's no objections, I can either host the files on my site and publish a list of links here, or I can import the files as Web site content.
