The following text is an excerpt from the Apache.org website:
Sometimes Apache cannot serve documents because the request was misspelled or miscapitalized. This module addresses this problem by trying to match the request to a document, even after all other modules gave up. The module compares each document name in the requested directory against the requested document name without regard to case, and it allows up to one misspelling (character insertion / omission / transposition or wrong character). A list is built with all document names which were matched using this strategy.
