[Maybe this is a little off-topic because it is mainly about
Apache...? Sorry if it is.] 

Well, I am trying to implement the <lang>.html thing and it is getting
tricky because of the way gfont works. GFont generates GIFs like 
index.gfont000.gif. So if I make a request to http://my_server/index
apache returns index.gfont000.gif instead of any of the
index.<lang>.html files. This is because I am using the "DirectoryIndex
index index.cgi index.shtml index.html index.htm" option of Apache.
Furthermore, for the sake of backwards compatibility I want URLs of
the form http://my_server/file.html to work.

So I you switch to <lang>.html I understand from Apache documentation
that content negotiation works ONLY if the file being requested does 
not exist (see http://www.apache.org/docs/content-negotiation.html ). 
What kind of problems do you have with the html.<lang> implementation?

Thanx for your time.
