well, this is only a simple modification I need only me, but I don't 
know why it seems not to work.
Since I'm blind, I use sometime a special braille computer in order to 
access internet.
The browser is really poor and not compatible with flash, html5, so it 
is quite old.
 From the moment I upgrade to icecast 2.4.1, instead of showing 
correctly the status page:
it shows me the source of the page.
This is really annoying!

To solve the problem I must modify the line in which there is:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">


A simple and stupid modification, as you can see, but for unexplained 
reasons, it is what this  old machine wants.
So I open my ssh console.

cd /usr/share/icecast2/web
nano status.xsl

I modified the line and save.
Restarted icecast2.

But the page is always shown with:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

Is there another page to modify?
Thank you!
