 A user is unable to 'view' drafts when there is a splash screen

 Steps to Recreate
 0. Set up WordPress to use pretty-URLs
 1. Create index.html (splash screen) in word-press root directory (along-
 side index.php).
 2. Save a post as Draft.
 3. Select View post (draft)
 4. URL will be something like http://mydomain/?p=postid
 5. The index.html page will be displayed, not he draft (because it is not
 using index.php)

 Work Arounds
 1. Save post as Private, view private is possible.
 2. Do some fancy .htaccess/Apache stuff
 3. Remove index.html and add a fancy if-else block to the index.php page.
 4. Remove index.html and give up on the CMS idea.
