I gave it another go this morning.  What I was doing was restarting httpd
after each change.  Evidently that was not enough.  I rebooted the computer
and WOW it works now.   So the httpd stop then httpd start apparently was
not recognizing the changes that I was making...

Oh well, it works now.

  Thanks for your help.
