FIX: You may receive a blank page when you try to compare two pages in a WBC in Edit mode

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
If you try to view two postings to compare the revision history in a Web Browser Client (WBC) in Edit mode, you may receive a blank Web page.
This problem occurs because the compare revision process called the PageRevisionCommon.js file, but the file no longer exists. If the user has a custom 404 error message in the Web.config file, it causes the PageRevisionCommon.js file to be returned as an HTML page. Because of this, you may receive a blank Web page in Microsoft Internet Explorer.
