Subject Re[2]: Why can't ap_send_error_response() count on charset?
Date Fri, 16 Aug 2002 03:28:21 GMT

    Well, it's maybe not so close to the subject... But...
    I'm faced up with some problem with the type-map files (yes, for
example, with default error pages in Apache distribution). Who can
tell me, what is the next line (that can be inserted in type-map
files) exactly means:

all error text in the file and rewrite all Body section to

URI: error.html

but this will not change anything. I MUST add .ru.cp-2151 extension to
this file so mod_mime can wake up...

    General question:
    Is it possible to define a charset in type-map files (for Body
