    I'll give that some thought.  At the moment, I'm letting HTML do the
    numbering, and that doesn't support subsections (alas!).

    That would be a treMENDous help.  Thenkew in advance!!  I'd like to
    get a lot more into it before 1.2 formal release, so deluge me!
    deluge me!

    Some things I'm thinking about adding, and am not sure are
    appropriate or don't have a clear answer for:

     o The fact that 1.2b6 included an out-of-sync mod_rewrite (this
       generated a high report level for a while, but has quieted down)
     o how to PUT (is the Apache Week article store persistent?  May I
       point to the article in the latest issue?  If so, where does/will
       it live?)
     o `can't bind to port 80' ("permission denied" or "address already
       in use") - canonical answer to this one?

    Opinions/answers on these?

    Once I feel more comfortable with the content being more
    true-to-life and what people really want to know, I'll undertake to
    do this as well.  Following that concept, I'd like to submit the FAQ
    documentation changes (when ready) to a vote rather than having them
    be automatic; if voted in, I'll take that as license to start
    posting to c.i.w.s.u.
