I have a question that may have an obvious answer but for the life of me I
can't seem to find it.
Here goes:

Any and every time I use the publisher handler I get an error when I return
any except for a string.

	def handler(req):
        req.content_type = "text/plain"
        req.write("Hello World!")

        return apache.OK

Displays :

	Hello World!HTTP/1.1 200 OK
	Date: Wed, 10 Jan 2001 17:48:44 GMT
	Server: Apache/1.3.14 (Unix) mod_python/2.7 Python/1.5.2
	Connection: close
	Transfer-Encoding: chunked
	Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1

	The server encountered an internal error or
	misconfiguration and was unable to complete
	your request.<P>
	Please contact the server administrator,
	 petergi at gemplus.com and inform them of the time the error occurred,
	and anything you might have done that may have
	caused the error.<P>
	More information about this error may be available
	in the server error log.<P>
	<ADDRESS>Apache/1.3.14 Server at Medusa Port 80</ADDRESS>

But there is nothing in the server logs.
Yet if a return a string instead (any string) even simply ( return " ").
It seems to be fine. Why? Can someone help me understand what is happening?
