Hello John,

On the WebFonts WG call just now, there was a certain amount of confusion with people seeing different things, in the editors draft of CSS3 Fonts.

After a while it turned out that if you add the explicit Overview.html
you get an editors draft dated 7 April 2011 but if you omit it
you get an editors draft dated 25 March 2011

That shouldn't really be happening. I wondered if there was maybe an old index.html in the directory, or something?
but no. However there is a Fonts.html
dated 25 March and that seems to be what is being served if Overview.html is not explicitly asked for. And this is caused by .htaccess which says

AddDefaultCharset UTF-8
DirectoryIndex Fonts.html

if there are links to Fonts.html that you don't want to break, adding a redirect to Overview.html in the .htaccess would seem to be a better idea. Or is there some other difference between these two files?

Both Fonts.html and Overview.html seem to have extensive cvs histories
