Right, we just play a bit with the file to see how they behave and look 
like inside the Apache infrastructure. The biggest difference to the 
original pages are now header and footer.

My suggestion:
We can create a legacy webpage for non-Apache releases with an own and

OK, seems to become a totally new one. ;-)
