If the server returns an error message, you would get that message 
instead of the file content - so it's possible that the web site has set 
custom error messages, and you're getting one of them (though 
"requested" isn't much of a custom message).

Are you connecting through a proxy or web cache ? It sounds just 
possible they could return this as a message if there was some unusual 
time-out condition.
