Thanks for your suggestion and speedy update of the wiki.

One thing, though:

In the wiki, you are saying one *needs* to modify web.config *in
addition* to using AddHandler and DirectoryIndex in the Apache config
if one wants index.html to be the directory index.

That doesn't seem to be the case based on what my server is doing at
the moment. I think maybe this is a problem with the way you worded it
in the wiki, either that or I'm confused. The way I understand it
based on this email is that you can do either one. With the web.config
way, xsp handles index.html (as opposed to apache handling it). I
don't see why one would want to do it like this, since handing static
html to xsp is unnecessary overhead.

Let me know if that makes sense.

Thanks again,
benjamin j. van der veen
