On https://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/rewrite/advanced.html, in the first example, "URL-based sharding across multiple backends", there is an example of an external map file. The last line is simply 2 colon characters separated by a space. I'm not sure if it's some kind of typo or if it has some particular meaning. A brief explanation of the role of that line would help.

These ":" are just continuation marks which represent the next lines of the file. Not sure what the best solution would be. ... [...] etc. In the XML file (from which the html file is generated), the ':' are aligned with the first letter of each column. Maybe it is a bit more understandable this way. However, when displayed as HTML, the extra spaces are grouped.
