Due to Unisys now enforcing the LZW patents and threatening
to sue websites not paying them royalties, it would be
prudent to switch the bundled GIF's to PNG's (especially of
hte default index.html page).
the red hat supplied GIF images will be PNGs in the next version (errata
release) of apache. Those GIFs supplied by the Apache Team themselves will
remain in stock GIF format.
Thanks much... now on to Apache :)
