That almost works. It allows me to open the index(1).php home page from my
link in index.html, but if I try to go any deeper, it loads the index.html
(while, interestingly, having the .php's deeper-level URL in the URL
address bar of the web-browser). So apparently, the rest of the .php-based
site expects its own index.php file to exist.
