Subject Antwort: [PATCH] mod_auth_digest.xml

Mozilla implemented Digest Authentication in version 0.9.7.

Thus, no Netscape 6 version (even Netscape 6.2.x ist still
Mozilla 0.9.4.x) supports Digest Authentication, and K-Meleon
0.6 (which is Mozilla 0.9.5) doesn't support it either.

Netscape 7.0PR1 is Mozilla 1.0RC2, and Digest Authentication
works without any problem there. (Netscape 7.0 final is said
to be made from Mozilla 1.0.1.)

The problem is Netscape 6.2.x that still doesn't support it
and is the current official Netscape browser (Netscape 7.0
is still a Preview Release only).
Maybe mention Netscape 4.x and 6.x explicitly as the one
main browser familiy that would cause problems?

Regards, Michael
