Thanks for that alternate solution, which works nicely with my other
rules and does what it says on the tin :)

Still interested as to why my original solution won't work though 
(I tried with and without line terminator etc - in fact I've tried over 
10 incarnations of that regexp - just can't seem to get perl style
negations working under apache) - but that's for another time and 
place now :)

Thanks again
