Ok, it works when accessing a file directly. I expected Apache to create
a directory listing if no file was specified and I requested a
directory. Apparently that's not the case. I'm still trying to get my

This sounds a bit like what I'm going to implement. Serving content from
XML source in several different formats, created using XSL

This apache.DECLINED stuff sure seems useful now that I get it. :)
