Interesting. I'm reaching the website through SSH without problems:

Firefox -> Privoxy -> ssh -> sshd -> www.freebsd.org

In related news, I've been using a Privoxy filter to fix the
worst rendering issues for several years now, and I'm considering
adding it to the port as well.

After all it doesn't look like www/91539 is going to get fixed any
time soon. As the archives will show, the problems were already known
before the redesign went live, but nobody cared back then either.
