Blast, sorry that should not have been in the sitemap for that matcher. 
Sorry, this probably took you a while to figure out.

I wouldn't expect that to work since you have added a matcher that will 
prevent the existing matchers in Forrest from processing the request for 
*.html. More below...

OK this is good. If you remove the matcher you created for *.html then 
the Forrest matcher for such patterns should be used instead, this one 
does all the skinning. In other words, it should "just work"

If you haven't done so already I recommend you read this may help you 
understand how this happens. Of course, it may not since it is a 
technical doc that assumes a level of knowledge. It would be useful to 
know how effective you feel this doc is.
