As the first stage of a simplification of the default config in 2.1 (only!), I'm

going to remove all the html files under httpd-2.1/docs/docroot/ and replace them

with an index.html file containing only <html><body><h1>It works!</h1></body></html>

I'm going to do this because:

1. The old welcome page is a constant source of confusion to random web surfers who

stumble on unconfigured apache installs.

2. New users, when finding on a docroot with dozens of files, are often confused

about where to put their own content.

3. The international welcome page is a large source of bug reports from people

wanting to tweak grammar or provide new translations.

4. This will allow us to simplify the default config by removing the config stuff

necessary to handle the typemap.

Conversion to XHTML.

The plan is to continue converting the rest of the docs to XHTML, so if you

have any objections, please voice them now on apache-docs.

Remove the direct links to the Apache web site from the welcome pages
