You probably did a 'HEAD' request, at which point Zope doesn't render the
page, but rather only acknowledges it's existence by returning above (bogus)
response. 

If you do a 'GET' on your Zope resource, it _will_ be called, at which point
Zope can determine what content type to send. Zope will guess the content type
for you, usually this is text/html, but you can use the How-To you mentioned
to tell Zope otherwise.
