   <H2>Syntax of the Configuration Files</H2>
   
  +<P>Apache configuration files contain one directive per line.  The
  +back-slash "\" may be used as the last character on a line to indicate
  +that the directive continues onto the next line.  There must be no
  +other characters or white space between the back-slash and the end of
  +the line.  To end a line with a literal back-slash, you can escape it
  +by preceding it with a second back-slash "\\".
  +
   <P>Directives in the configuration files are case-insensitive, but
   arguments to directives are often case sensitive.  Lines which begin
   with the hash character "#" are considered comments, and are ignored.
  -Comments may <STRONG>not</STRONG> be included on a line after a configuration
  -directive.  White space occurring before a directive
  -is ignored, so you may indent directives for clarity.
