"jim" I put in there according to the linked directions. "beth" was, strangely, already there. Both are, of course, shortnames of accounts on my Mac.

No. Nor does it work from another computer on the network. I get "It works!" when I go to the IP address of the local computer (as well as when I go to 127.0.0.1 from that computer).

That is ancient magic. Are you going to suggest I rearrange my SCSI devices next?
In any case, it didn't work. Is my Apache installation hosed, or what? I'm a little baffled as to how giving permissions to one account changes the http://127.0.0.1 page from "It Works!" to whatever I have in /Library/Webserver.

I...er...I wondered where in the world "It works!" was coming from, so I did a Spotlight search...and it was
/Library/WebServer/Documents/index.html.en. In other words, right what it was supposed to be. For some reason that baffles me, the standard Apache welcome page had been renamed and that had been put in its place. Weird.
Well, I have the most important thing, a way to host webpages from my Mac; it's not actually required that the /~ pages work. Maybe someday when I have time to dive into Apache I'll figure out what's going on...
Oh...gods...it was the simplest explanation imaginable...
Granting all users read permission on ~/jim/Sites.
I now have to go burn my Mac Guru hat.
