I don't own a web 'domain'; I have to use a dynamic DNS resolver (DynDNS.org) in order to give the site out to my family & friends without explaining to them what an IP address is.
But when I ping that resolver address, it comes through no problem:
gandalf# ping deesto.dyndns.org
PING deesto.dyndns.org (24.186.214.24): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 24.186.214.24: icmp_seq=0 ttl=150 time=0.659 ms
....

So the question remains: what am I doing wrong??

Port 80 filtered

Port 80 is filtered by your ISP.

Go to the httpd.conf file and chage the port it binds to from 80 to another say 3000. I think that line may already be in the default config. Just uncomment it. Then go to dyndns and setup the web fowarding service to redirect requests to your.address.dom:3000/

zoneedit.com is quite nice and free too. You can poit it to your dyndns address:3000 and there are no popups there. (webforward from dyndns causes popups unless you pay)

Thanks. I signed up at ZoneEdit.com, created a 'web forward' to send traffic from my DynDNS entry to port 8080 at my IP address. I then edited httpd.conf to change both instances of ":80" to ":8080", and restarted the daemon.
Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to have done anything: I still get 'can't find server' errors when trying to browse from outside.

8080 filtered too sorry

8080 is also filtered on your ISP, sorry my bad advice.
I use 3000 on mine...

Listen 3000 # note no semicolon

apachectl stop
apachectl start

Boy this is frustrating... .
I changed "Listen 8080" to "Listen 10101" in httpd.conf, and commented out the other line completely. I then stopped & restarted the daemon (which BTW you can also do with 'apachectl graceful') and it's running:
gandalf# netstat -nat| grep 10101
tcp46 0 0 *.10101 *.* LISTEN

I then changed my ZoneEdit web forward destination to :10101, but I'm still getting the same error when I try to access the web site.

As it turns out, the final issue was not a port routing problem, or even a BSD problem; it was a problem concerning remote IP/DNS/name resolution and redirection. It's still a litttle messy, but until I'm willing to settle on and pay for a domain name, I'll have to live with a redirect and specifying IP addresses and ports.
Thanks to 5amYan and cyberskye for their invaluable help!

Here's one. http://www.10-domains.com/hosting/plans.asp

Just do a search on "domain registration" and see what you find. I am moving from DC to SF next month and plan on using these guys to host my three sites while my hardware sits lonely in hte dark back of a moving truck...

You're looking at their webhosting packages - that's what I had bookmarked when I was shopping for my temp host. The link above is their registration page. $10

I thought I'd pass on an even better deal I found:
http://www.godaddy.com
... starts at $8.95 USD for 1 year and decreases for each additional year! Not bad! And I've heard good things about their interface and service from several members of a BSD mailing list.
