When you say "default ErrorDocument", do you mean you get MSIE's
"friendly" error message, or do you mean that you get Apache's default
error document?  MSIE substitutes it's own message when the error output
is "too small", which essentially makes it impossible to send simple text
error messages to MSIE clients.  Bad Microsoft!
