Yes, same here for us, on two different boxen.

It _seems_ that there's already something magical about Apache's config.
on LUGOD.org, _OR_ that IE actually looks at the length/complexity/keywords
within the 404 response HTML to "decide" whether it's already "friendly enough"

Compare:

  http://www.lugod.org/tototo

with the setting on and off   (both cases, you see my nice PHP 404 error)

to:

  http://www.newbreedsoftware.com/tototo

with the setting on and off   (on, you see the generic IE "friendly" 404,
                               off, you see my simply 404.shtml page)


Whatever.   This is why I don't like thinking about IE. :)


-bill!
(discovered that a server-erroring VBScript in IIS still sends a 200 "OK"
response, since I guess they assume all VB coders are too stewpid to disable
the 'friendly error' setting.   Seriously...  I read this at microsoft.com
just now after doing a Google search ;) )
