I may have totally misunderstood what you're trying to achieve. I thought you 
were trying to route incoming traffic to your firewall to port 80 on a 
machine in your DMZ and that this machine had a private (non-routable) IP. 
With the FW_FORWARD_MASK the source address of incoming traffic to your 
webserver won't be rewritten, only the destination address is. Outgoing 
traffic will have the source address rewritten to the IP of your firewall, 
but wasn't that is the whole idea about PAT?
