by sheer coincidence I uploaded a file named README.html to a directory with just sub directories in it and lo and behold it actually displayed the file as html under what you'd normally see generated by directory listing. This is cool, but it leads me to inquire further.
Is there any way (at my level, the user level) to alter the markup of the the default directory listing pages spit out by Apache?
Yes and no.
There is no "template" for you to modify. However there are "options" you can set and this is in the Apache documentation at IndexOptions directive
Perl / MySQL / HTML+CSS
awesome, thanks man. I'm just screwing up and getting 500's tho
what's wrong with this:
IndexOptions +indexes +FancyIndexing +FoldersFirst
that it should throw a 500 internal server error?
um, disregard for the time being! I'm putting each on a new line and that seems to be doing the trick, grazi!
Where did that Indexes come from?!?! That is an option for the Options directive.
IndexOptions +FancyIndexing +FoldersFirst

thanks for the help, I messed around and was pleasantly suprised with what you're able to do with that. Thanks a million for the assist
