Plain text please...

Things inside square brackets on a RewriteRule or RewriteCond are "flags" - they modify the
way the Cond or Rule is applied. See
and look for "flags" for more details.

To answer your specific questions, [OR] performs a logical-OR of two or more RewriteConds,

RewriteCond cond_1 [OR]
RewriteCond cond_2
RewriteRule patt_1 patt_2

means apply the rule if cond_1 OR cond_2 is true.

[L] means "last". That is, if you hit this rule, make the rewrite and stop processing any
further rewrites for this request. It is a way of jumping out of a series of rules (like "break"
in C, or "last" in perl).
