Hi Joshua,

I appreciate your sticking with me and offering a couple of 

I tried both of your suggested options and lordy, lordy, they BOTH seem 
to work just fine!

Actually, I was trying to get Mason up and running.  It worked okay for 
direct calls (which indicates Mason is doing its job) but crashed and 
burned when I tried to get Mason to process a page with embedded code 
via Apache.  The use of the .test extension was purely that - for 
testing.  I haven't decided yet whether to process all .html files, or 
use a separate extension for Mason (expect it will depend on what 
percentage of pages actually HAVE embedded code), but either way, 
setting up the server should be the same.  The purpose of the "test" 
files was to isolate the problem, to ensure that it really WAS an 
Apache problem.  (It appears that it is... but I'm still a little 
confused why the original approach failed.)

Thanks for the help.
