I'm messing around with mod_rewrite, using Apache Win32 installation, and came across an interesting problem. Wondering if anyone had input on this matter. Here are my rewrite directives:
RewriteRule ^search/(.*)$ http://localhost/modrewrite/newsearch/newsearch.html [R]
So basically, I want the URL to change in the address bar (thus the [R]). It changes just fine in Netscape Nav., and Opera, but it will not change in Internet Explorer 5.0. How is IE overriding what Apache wants to do? IE is displaying the correct page, it's just that the URL isn't updated.

Try the RedirectMatch directive instead and see if IE acts the same way.
