Right. I was getting the German version of this page and I swear it didn't 
include the <Files> thing last time I looked. Now it does. And it looks like it 
has been added during the last days as it is still missing an "or".
So, you are right, yes.

Thanks for the info. Still, I think you can keep the AddType directive and not 
use ForceType because the problem is only the AddHandler directive that 
overrides the mime-type for the image.
