apache has auto language selection option which debian web server uses
(I understant it is a compile time option.)

Typically, a directory is set up to contain:


If all these to exist in a directory, apache will serve page depanding
on your web browser preference settings.

See http://www.debian.org/intro/cn as user's manual.
See http://httpd.apache.org/docs/content-negotiation.html for real

(Extention can be even index.html.fr if you set it so)

(I have no idea why people use pt-br here instead of pt_BR.  But that is
the convention used on Debian machine.  If only it is changed, it solves
problem. debiandoc-sgml actually convert locale to this style of
language coding.)
