Alias is doing exactly that on my site right now. Or is it my 


comes via:

         Alias /wiki/stylesheets /[path to 
         Alias /wiki/style /[path to website]/IslandSeeds/wiki/style
         Alias /wiki/images /[path to website]/IslandSeeds/wiki/images
         Alias /wiki/skins /[path to website]/IslandSeeds/wiki/skins
         Alias /wiki/redirect.php /[path to 
         Alias /wiki/textvc.php /[path to 
         Alias /wiki/index.php /[path to 
         Alias /wiki /[path to website]/IslandSeeds/wiki/index.php

her exactly as she is, and force the viewer to see the pretty girl she 
used to be, more than that, he can make anyone with the sensitivity of 
an armadillo see that this lovely young girl is still alive, prisoned 
inside her ruined body. He can make you feel the quiet endless tragedy 
that there was never a girl born who ever grew older than eighteen in 
her heart. -- Robert Heinlein
