yes this a known issue. libsoup doesn't support compression, and some
sites send out gzipped content when they shouldn't.
So lxde.org and others cannot be used on webkitGtk based browsers.
Even wikipedia does it!

but then again, I did ask for examples of *broken* websites that do not
work well in webkitGtk, so this is a good example.  (but libsoup should
gain gzip support soon, I've heard).

Please let me know more sites that do not work with webkitGtk for other
reasons than this, both broken and correct sites are welcome.
