That's correct. This is a feature of Apache 1.1. The "map" (assuming that
it is so configured - see srm.conf) tells Apache to treat the file as an
imagemap rule file. After that, the "html" simply tells Apache to display
the results as HTML by default (unless something else overrides it).

If you are not using imagemaps, you could take the appropriate line out of
your configuration files. Otherwise, you will have to rename your file to
"blah-map.html" or something else.

This is no doubt due to the fact that you, again, are having the file
parsed by the imagemap handler, and it is not expecting a GIF, but a text
file with imagemap rules.

Thanks for using Apache!
