After some testing on my production system, I have another question. I 
am using the standard htaccess rules to do simulate static URLs. 
However, after invoking the rule to move the root directory down one 
level (RewriteRule     ^(.*)/$   $1), one of the T3 rules fails in the 
following way:

This rule works
RewriteRule ^johnson/?$    index.php?id=johnson [L]
This rule does not work
RewriteRule ^johnson/?$    johnson.html [L]

Is this failure caused by my first rule that moves the root? What about 
it is incorrect?
