Hello Jeff

Using some of your examples I got it to work but only after I went live 
with the site instead of hosting it on a sub-domain. I have a question.

When your error page is used, does it register and log a 404 error code 
in the server logs? The way I have it set up it only records 200, 
leading search engines to believe that everything is okay instead of 
updating their index.

Additionally I find that this works even if I leave out the

ErrorDocument 404 404page_not_found.php

or put in any other file name.

Something has to be configured wrong here but I don't know what.

Any ideas?
