I have implemented your addition to the script and explicitly placed the
runlevels of  2345 in the init script but am afraid I do not see the 
This is most likely due to my ignorance of the SysV init system.

If I have #chkconfig: - 85 15 and perform

chkconfig some_website on

I get symlinks rc3.d/S85some_website, rc5.d/S85some_website,
rc4.d/S85some_website and rc2.d/S85some_website

If I have #chkconfig: 2345 85 15 and perform  the same command I get
exactly the same symlinks.

I suppose my confusion comes from thinking there should be K15some_website
symlinks in  rc6.d and rc0.d for the halt and reboot runlevels.  I found 
I can only get
K15some_website if I perform a chkconfig some_website off

Could you shed some more light on this subject please ?
