Apache Guide: Generating Fancy Directory Listings with mod_autoindex Page 3




     ReadmeName README

and you have a file in that directory called README.html,
that file will be displayed as the readme file for that directory.

Another neat trick here is that you can use HeaderName in
conjunction with IndexOptions +SuppressHTMLPreamble, putting
HTML in the header file to specify background, fonts, style
sheets, or whatever you use on the rest of your site, so that
the directory listing does not have to look like it does not
belong to the rest of your site.

Conclusion

In the cases where you have directory listings rather than
actual HTML pages, mod_autoindex can make these listings look
exactly as you want them to, without having to generate custom
directory listing pages for each directory.
