Snort does not seem to like the following new vision rule:

alert TCP $EXTERNAL any -> $INTERNAL 80 (msg: "IDS305/web-IIS view source
via Translate header"; content: "Translate: F"; nocase; flags: AP;)

If I do not comment out the rule, Snort says there is a content quotation

Since I am just a beginner with Snort rules, I am not exactly sure what is
missing or out of place.

Maybe it is the : after Translate. Because the quotes are indeed there.
