Strange that this incorrect call to print went unnoticed for so long... You can't simply replace the call to print by a call to display. The correct fix is:
(list version " 200 OK" eol
"Content-Length: " (u8vector-length message) eol
"Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" eol
"Connection: close" eol
Thanks for reporting the problem!
