AddType will apply to any requested resource with the specified filename extension (within the specified context.)
ForceType will apply to all requested resources (within the specified context.)
i'm not sure this would work using a FilesMatch container.
When placed into an .htaccess file or a <Directory>, or <Location> or <Files> section...
if you want to use ForceType and limit it to one filetype i think you would need to use something like the following instead:
<Files ~ "\.html\.gz$">
have you verified that the correct Content-Type header is being sent with the response when configured using the AddType directive for .html.gz files?
note that ForceType is a core module directive while AddType is a mod_mime directive.
if mod_mime isn't loaded/enabled the directive won't work.
