That doesn't say much... :-)

I couldn't find a single program or editor that could display that
file correctly. Pretty amazing that one file can defeat all programs.

Programs I tried:
  Kate (kde editor)
  gEdit (Gnome editor)
  Firefox 3 (did the best out of the lot)
  vi (disastrous)
  OpenOffice 2.3 (probably the best out of the lot)
  AbiWord 2.4.6

Do you know of any program that passes that test?
