For "root" page documentation the WSS is designed to serve content from a file or proxy the content from another URL.

When the content cannot be retrieved an error is returned to the user, for example:

Can't find root documentation page:

We want to add information to that error page to make it prettier. Perhaps report the name of the service, version, etc. along with the explanation that the root documentation could not be retrieved.
