I access my MythWeb from work all the time.  Because my ISP filters
out port 80, I just adjusted the Apache configuration file to use a
non-standard port (2525 in my case).  Plus, I set up my router to
forward any requests for that port to go directly to the Myth box. 
All other ports are blocked from outside.  Finally, my router uses
Dynamic DNS to make sure I don't need to know what the current IP
address of the router is, I just use my domain name.  Finally,
although not strictly necessary, I did set up Apache to use basic
auth, as well.
