      Description

      Neither Chrome nor Safari display xml files in browser window. One needs to
      select View Source in Safari, to view content of xml files. Where this is
      important in Glassfish, is when user tries to view WSDL file from Admin Console,
      of a deployed web services application. The file shows fine in Firefox.

      Thus we should warn users in the web services section of documentation, that
      they will not see WSDL file in Safari nor Chrome, when they click on the link to
      the file from Admin Console.

        The helpId for the page to include this information is "endpoint", in the common module.

        Basically, If user uses FireFox, they will see the WSDL info by clicking the WSDL link.
        If they use Chrome or Safair, the browser will show a blank page, so they need to 'right click' to 'View
        Page Source' in order to see the content.

        Following info added to writeup of WSDL on help page for "Web Service Endpoint Information" (ref-endpoint.html):

        Note that some web browsers attempt to interpret the WSDL source when you click the WSDL link, and so display a blank page. For such browsers, use the browser's View Source command on the blank page to view the WSDL source.

        Committed to v3-docs svn rev 43740; included in v3 build 33 (MS7)
