Linux 2.0.23 / Intel / Slackware distribution
In "Apache: The definitive guide", page 92, it is said that both forms
"index.html.en" and "index.en.html" are accepted. After a day's testing work,
a short look at the source code showed this can't be true! The only accepted
for is "index.html.en".
It would be very nice to be able to call the language-dependent files
index_en.html, or index.html_en because many authoring tools replace the first
dot by an underscore, making it impossible to save a file called index.html.en !
"index.en.html" would also be better than "index.html.en" because this would
allow to make direct links to a specific language while keeping the automatic
content-type recognition with the ".html" suffix.
Very simply!
Just create the files:
index.en.html  (does not work)
index.html.en  (works)
Well probably something to expand in the region of "getword", but I don't
know the Apache code well enough to suggest an "intelligent" way of fixing it
