re: source - yes I am using the same source files.  I removed all of
my previous files and used just the contents from the file I supplied
plus the additional lines you suggested.

Explanations are good, because I do not have a good idea how this
works and there is little documentation on http server application.
RegisterFileLocation, AllowDefaultModule and AllowDefaultModule are
not found in the chm help files and googling for them does not find
anything useful.  If any documentation exists, please provide a link.
I would love to RTFM ("read the FINE manual").

Assuming that one module is better than two, I removed the
RegisterHTTPModule('Main', TMain);  &
Application.DefaultModuleName:='main';  lines, but that did not help.
I was unable to get the http server to provide anything.

For this simple example, should I have two modules or should I only
the default module? If using only the default module is acceptable,
how would I use it?

re: the images directory - once I get this working (making an
assumption), I want to have all of my images located in a secondary
directory and all of my html files in the main (server root)
Eventually:  ImageDir  := GetCurrentDir + DirectorySeparator + 'image';

Do you (or anyone) have a working example of one or two http server
applications, preferable with images on the web page?
