HP-UX 10.01, however that seems N/A

AuthName "Two words"
AuthType Basic

in a .htaccess file apache produces an ilegal WWW-Authenticate header:

$ telnet www.math.uio.no 80
Connected to kryseis.uio.no.
Escape character is '^]'.
GET /~janl/test HTTP/1.0

HTTP/1.1 401 Authorization Required
Date: Fri, 03 Oct 1997 17:00:57 GMT
Server: Apache/1.2.4
WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm=""Two words""
Connection: close
Content-Type: text/html

Note double quotes in the realm spec.  You need not use the quotes in
the realm spec in the .htaccess file, but people will be liable to
if the realm name contains HWS.
