Thanks for the response and the suggestions. I looked at file types and
found that php on misbehaving machines had been set up to open files in
Notepad. When I removed that, all worked fine. I have no idea why, since
the file should have been processed on the =server=, not the client.
Also, I had observed that if I directly entered a URL like
..../pmwiki.php?n=Main.HomePage?action=source  it worked just fine on
ANY machine.  Oh, well, another mystery. But thanks for pointing me to
the solution!!!
