Thanks, that should do the job.

Out of interest, if 'UseCanonicalName' was off would that cause the 
redirect to go to whatever hostname the client had used in the request - 
say for example if the vhost had a couple of aliases (I don't actually 
want to do that, just interested to know)

Thanks again.
