There's "most" pager discussed here a week or so ago, too.

(Incidentally that link returns a blank page for me on FF mobile.)

I missed most, I'll look for it.

The link to pg works on my FF Android. I'm using uBlock origin. Are you using some other adblocker or add on?

The link is similarly a white screen on Android Chrome for me.

Hopefully this works http://man.he.net/?topic=pg&section=all

The page source is as simple as it could have been in 1996 :-)

The original link has a broken table layout with some unbalanced </table> and </tr>. Maybe that breaks rendering on your browsers, but why not on my Firefox?

For me, not only the page is completely empty, but also the page-source, so I don't think that it's a rendering problem and rather the server sending a 0-long HTML-file or something like that.

It also finishes loading rather quickly, so it would only make sense that it's not even downloading anything.

And neither Firefox, nor Lightning Browser (WebView-based), nor CyanogenMod's Gello Browser (Chromium-based) show any form of error and just happily render a completely empty page.

Also, I do get the favicon displayed, so at least some form of connection to the server seems to be possible.

Edit: Just had another idea. It works for me when I tell Firefox to request the desktop site. So, maybe the server just gets confused by a mobile useragent-string...?

Posting this here, too, for visibility:

The page works for me when I tell my browser to request the desktop site.

Ops, I realized that I configured my mobile browsers to request the desktop sites. It's more convenient on a tablet.

    curl -A 'Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 4.0.4; Galaxy Nexus Build/IMM76B) AppleWebKit/535.19 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/18.0.1025.133 Mobile Safari/535.19' http://www.unix.com/man-page/linux/1/pg/
returns nothing so it's definitely a mobile unfriendly site.
