Thanks Wesley for taking the time to answer, much appreciated!  Yes, I 
have tried this filter mapping / url-pattern with no joy.  Also have 
tried a url-pattern of *.html and no joy either....

Yeah, neither are mine ;-) ...  The trouble with reg expressions is that 
there are a lot of variants and documentation does not clarify just 
whose reg expr parser is being used. I usually assume GNU, but been bit 
so many times by that assumption that I can never be sure.  So I don't 
know how to modify this either....
