There's a typo here. If you actually created the directory called that,
then no wonder it doesn't work :) If the directory is correctly named
and this is an email typo, then I have no idea.

that should be public_html not public_directory(unless you changed
httpd.conf. also be sure that apache has read access, which is
usually default, but if your more strict with security you may
chmod o+rx /home/westk /home/westk/public_html
so apache can access it. also all files in public_html need to
be readable by apache as well(again this is the default..)
Yeah, it's a typo in the email. The directory is actually
/home/westk/public_html, as written (correctly) earlier in the email.
And the permissions are:
westk03[westk]:/home/westk> ls -ld public_html/
drwxr-xr-x 2 westk westk 1024 Sep 13 01:32 public_html/
westk03[westk]:/home/westk> ls -l public_html/
-rw-r--r-- 1 westk westk 8647 Sep 13 00:42 index.html
