Thanks Joshua!

So basically this is what it comes down to, right?

a) Copy all html.en files to html.html so that users never get a 406

b) symlink all html.en to html.html and turn on FollowSymlinks on EVERY 
bloody directory of my webserver (yes, I know about .htaccess files, 
but then I'd have to stick one of those in all directories... or 
specify each directory in httpd.conf or... <puke> )

c) Upgrade to Apache 2 and hope that the next system upgrade (I'm on 
Mac OS X) doesn't clobber my installation.

Any comments, anyone?
