That is correct but you do not need to do this because your server is already doing it by default... there's no reason for you to go the effort or add new files unless you plan on using something much different for the name of the index page to be served to users. This works per folder as well.
So do I understand you right if I add this to htaccss
that will take you to the index page on root and on folders index page?
if that were in the htaccess for the folder/directory "mysite.com/swedish/" you are telling the server to show the page named "widgets.html" to users as the default index page even if there is a file in the same directory named "index.html".
