how to set descriptions for files served by Apache


How can I add descriptions to my files served by the Apache web server. It has columns showing filename, size, date modified, and description. How do I set a description?

I've never actually used this...

Code:
# AddDescription allows you to place a short description after a file in
# server-generated indexes.  These are only displayed for FancyIndexed
# directories.
# Format: AddDescription "description" filename
#
#AddDescription "GZIP compressed document" .gz
#AddDescription "tar archive" .tar
#AddDescription "GZIP compressed tar archive" .tgz
But now that you've mentioned it ....
