Apache httpd + FastCGI works fine for me.

Lighttpd has advantages in memory footprint, ease of configuration,  
and speed (but only 10-20% in the benchmarks I've seen).  Apache has  
advantages in module support (dav_svn and security have been  
mentioned) and configuration flexibility (.htaccess files and various  
additional knobs to adjust).

The right choice for you depends on what you're doing and what your  
requirements are.  If you're just running typo and have no other  
demands lighttpd + fastcgi is probably your best choice right now.   
(Although people are saying good things about the SCGI interface that  
is under development which supports both lighttpd and Apache httpd...)
