The rewrite rule is backwards for your situation. This will (internally) 
rewrite the URL http://localhost/index/11/ into 
http://localhost/index.html?id=11. If the end user visits the latter URL 
directly, the rewrite rule won't apply. If you want to change 
http://localhost/index.html?id=11 into http://localhost/index/11/, you 
have to reverse the rewrite rule. However, you'll have to break out the 
query string into a RewriteCond directive, as the RewriteRule directive 
does not include the query string. Something like this (I can't remember 
the exact syntax for query string checking off the top of my head, so 
this might be a little off).

RewriteCond ${QUERY_STRING} ^id=([0-9]+)$
RewriteRule ^/index.html$ /index/%1/
