OK, I think I see what's happening now... Nautilus sees that I'm at an
HTTP URL, so it views .html files as "links" to web pages.  However, I
would argue that this behavior should change when you're using the
webdav view.  Since you're dealing with uploading and downloading files,
shouldn't files appear the same as they would on a local drive or FTP
