mod_dav

mod_dav enables Apache to understand the WebDAV protocol (extensions to HTTP). WebDAV stands for "Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning", and is defined by RFC 2518. WebDAV is intended to replace proprietary authoring protocols such as those used by Frontpage or NetObjects' Fusion, but is also a complete set of protocols for manipulating a webserver's files and directories, and their properties.

            Microsoft does want to toss their extensions and use only WebDAV (I used to work at MSFT, and even talked to the FP group about this). The problem is that the FP protocol is a superset of WebDAV, so they have to keep some kind of extension. They could certainly degrade behavior and whatnot, but it is a lot of work and they're a bit leery of digging into that.

            Nope.
            Not true.
            Now up to FP2002 and that still uses the CGI-based system for updating

            I can't remember where I read it, but in M$ Office 2000, front page extensions will be dumped and it will start using the dav standard.
