Subject UseCanonicalPhysicalPort doc's
Date Tue, 07 Feb 2006 20:22:15 GMT
The docs for UseCanonicalPhysicalPort says:

With UseCanonicalPhysicalPort Off  Apache will not ever use the actual 
physical port number, instead relying on all configured information to 
construct a valid port number.

However the Note then says:

UseCanonicalName Off | DNS

     * Parsed port from Host: header
     * Physical port
     * Port provided in Servername
     * Default port

so does it use physical or not?

Also, in general, the doc is very confusing:

With UseCanonicalPhysicalPort On Apache will, when constructing the 
canonical port for the server to honor the UseCanonicalName directive, 
provide the actual physical port number being used by this request as a 
potential port.

Is there some punctuation missing here or am I having a bad day?
