 	Yes, I agree.  I meant that you *should* need the ForceTypes, and 
so it is strange that they would work without it.  My only thought was 
the web server is setup to look at the first line to decide what sort of 
file it is, if it doesn't have an extension or mime-type associated with 
it.  Hm. perhaps not too crazy, if you server is setup to serve php files 
via cgi, as I believe for other cgi files it looks at the #!/bin/perl or 
whatever on the first line.  Is the file (say ./blog or ./category) marked 
executable by any chance?

 	Yes, I think there is a different setting, or at least the default 
changed between 1.3 and 2.

 	Crazy.  I guess people need more servers like yours - everyone has 
so much trouble getting it to work properly, and you can't break it if you 
tried.  (:
