No, Mark.  Your information here has been the single most helpful (not to
say the other's haven't been of some help, but they did leave me with more
questions than answers).

Add to the complications my personal history of first using Apache HTTPD on
a non-windows/non-Unix environment (OpenVMS) so much of the inherent
folklore and collective "culture" assumed so often by folks writing the
code & documentation is non-existant in my sensorium.

Everyone's help here is valued greatly.  But thanks, Mark, for your
knowledgeable experimentation on my behalf like this.
