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"



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



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. :)

(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 ;) )
