Comment 1 Jason Vas Dias 2005-12-21 11:11:26 EST
We apologize for the delay in processing this bug report .


I've just downloaded page in question, with both: 
 $ wget http://www.britishairwaysband.com/veday.htm
and
 $ lwp-request  http://www.britishairwaysband.com/veday.htm > /tmp/veday.htm

It appears the message from LWP/Protocol.pm is not in error - 
the veday.htm file is full of illegal binary characters - 
e.g. the first line:

 $ head -1 < /tmp/veday.htm | od -cx
0000000 377 376   <  \0   H  \0   T  \0   M  \0   L  \0   >  \0  \r  \0
        feff 003c 0048 0054 004d 004c 003e 000d
0000020  \n  \0
        000a
0000021

Perl does its best to figure out what kind of encoding is being used, but
there is no encoding in which all the 8-bit sequences in this file are legal.
 
I suggest converting the file to 7-bit ASCII:

perl -ne 'foreach $c ( split //, $_ )
{ if( ((ord($c) < 0x20) && !( $c =~ /[\n\r\t\v]/)) || (ord($c) > 0x7f) )
  { next; }; 
  print $c; 
};' < /tmp/veday.htm > /tmp/veday_ascii.htm

I've attached the /tmp/veday_ascii.htm file so you can see the differences.
