Subject Re: [users@httpd] No One Responds! Serving files whose name contains special characters
Date Fri, 19 Mar 2004 16:46:23 GMT
Hi Everyone-

I just subscribed a few days ago and no one has reponded to my post. Are 
posts archived somewhere where I can read through them? Is this a 
problem that is not easily addressed? Have I left something out?
Thanks,

/tc
