I have tried to implement CleanURLs a couple times unsuccessfully.  This
time I've persisted a bit longer and I believe I've found out why it's not

Microsoft-IIS/5.0.  Pretty clear I'm out of the apache fold at this point...

When I read over CleanURL page there is a reference/example to IIS but it
requires installation of a "Mod Rewrite 2" ISAPI module (from

Since I do not have this level of access to my host I'm assuming that means
CleanURLs are impossible unless my host agrees to do this.

Could somebody confirm that there aren't other alternatives out there that
I'm missing?
