Subject www.apache.org info.html update
Date Fri, 04 Apr 1997 20:54:59 GMT
http://www.apache.org/info.html contains some rather old reasons for
using Apache (e.g. "it is faster than NCSA 1.3"). The enclosed patch
provides some new ideas of reasons why using Apache is a good idea without
comparing it to NCSA 1.3....

It might also be a good idea to re-vamp the "Implements frequently
requested features" bit to include some of the newer features.

I've removed spaces from before question marks. Surely they are
unnecessary ? And updated version numbers to the current ones.
