a) you shouldn't post HTML to the list ;)
b) is the DirectoryIndex directive placed in the correct context, so it
    applies to the directory in question?
c) make sure the filename placed before "index.html" in the list
d) make sure you haven't misspelled the filename. It must match exactly;
    "a.html" won't match "a.htm" for example.
