Which condition needs negating? The one with HTTP_HOST? What
then would keep this rewrite rule from breaking external links
where they also contain a matching NN.html string?

Or did you mean, remove the files we planned removing and then
do testing? It's live files, so the client won't remove them
until after the rewrite rule has been proven to work.

And yet, it did. No effect one way, internal server error the other.
It's Apache v2.2.8 running on CentOS v4. something, 4.6 I think.

Because I'm not a full-time employee and it isn't cost-effective to
duplicate their system for this one rewrite rule. As I said, it worked
as desired in the sandbox subdirectory, it isn't working when tested
on the live subdomain.
