Michael,

Thanks.

I was just searching godaddy help and found this:

"Changes made to an existing .htaccess file will be seen immediately. When a
new .htaccess file is created or an existing .htaccess file is deleted,
however, these changes will not be seen until the htaccess cache is cleared.
This occurs every hour."

So now I have to wait an hour to see if it worked ... bumber, but it may
explain why the one I created before was working.

So, I'll give it a try and see

... Richard
