|Subject:||Permissions problem with accessing symbolic link|

I am running Mac OS X 10.5.7 with Apache 2.2.11 installed. I have an
audio application that creates an html log file of tracks that are
playing. I am trying to use a symbolic link to access the html file
so I can post it over my LAN. The file resides in a directory inside
of my documents folder.
/Users/username/Documents/MegaSeg User Data/Logs
I have verified that the permissions to all of the parent directories
have at least execute privileges for others. The html log file I am
trying to share has the following privileges...
-rw-r--r--@ 1 [username] staff 625 Jul 10 17:17 NowPlaying.html
I used the following command to setup my symbolic link...
ln -s /Users/[username]/Documents/MegaSeg\ User\ Data/Logs/
That seemed to work fine, because when I do an ls -al in my website's
folder I see the link. I have a basic index.html, with a link to
nowplaying.html, but when I click on the link I get a 403 Forbidden
Can anyone help me out with this one? I am stuck.
