See below...we've got a 404 on a 404 :) 
Not Found
The requested URL /missingdoc.php was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an 
ErrorDocument to handle the request. 

Also, I really think the most elegant solution would be to add a permanent 
server redirect to the httpd.conf file, for these two URLs only. They are 
special cases. An Alias might be more appropriate in the second case, 
however, since the /resources/documentation directory still exists.

An httpd.conf line like "Redirect permanent /resources/documentation/base"; 
should work for the first case.

Can we make sure the missing 404 gets fixed?
