    Humm..  I do, actually.  I'll undertake to work on this.

    Truly I goofed; I misread something when glancing over some RFC
    changes within the last few weeks.  {blush}  I'll regenerate the
    patches sans DOCTYPEs.

    At some point I'd like to see all the server-generated HTML be
    consistent as to format & case (i.e., all tags in either upper- or
    lower-case), and be more readable through the addition of judicious
    newlines.  I mean, "<HTML><head><title>Foo</title><head><BODY>\n"
    works, but it's not very nice to look at if anyone is doing a "view
    source" or using tcpshow..  This is definitely not a bug, but I'll
    undertake to generate patches for this unless someone wants to -1
    the concept now..

    I'm hacking at this one now.  IMHO, this is a fairly serious
    security issue - not so much the status module as the info module.

>Contrib stuff / future:

    I'm going to send the reporter the patch for mod_include, point out
    the pitfalls (thanx, Marc!) of doing it server-wide, and probably
    ask that the PR be suspended.  I think that's it for this subject in

    #ken    :-)}
