Subject Re: [users@httpd] Adding a query with rewrite

After much experimentation, I got it!
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/([a-zA-Z]+)\/([^\/]+)\/(.{0})$
RewriteRule / /mydir?topic=%2 [L]

Subject: [users@httpd] Adding a query with rewrite

This is on my home computer with Windows 7 and Apache 2.2.
Once it works here I will upload to my host, Godaddy.
I have AllowOverride FileInfo and know the .htaccess file is being read.
'mysite' is a <VIRTUALHOST> on my home computer. On the host it is ''.
DirectoryIndex is index.html index.php
I am just learning about Apache, mod_rewrite and regex.

I have a whole bunch of subdirectories (/mydir/xxx/) each with it's own outdated index.html
I have written a single mydir/index.php?topic=xxx) to replace them all
Directly calling http://mysite/mydir?topic=xxx works fine.

I want traffic to mysite/mydir/xxx/          where the index.htmls are outdated
to rewrite to      mysite/mydir?topic=xxx     the new general purpose index.php
but  images       mysite/mydir/xxx/img.jpg   are still in xxx
and to leave      mysite/mydir?topic=xxx     the correct call without change
and                    mysite/myotherdir          should not be effected

In mydir/.htaccess I tried:

RewriteEngine on
# for a directory, not an image file
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} -d           
#doesn't have query
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^$
RewriteRule ^mydir/(\w+)/?$ mydir?topic=$1 [L,R=301]

but it still gets mysite/mydir/xxx/index.html
instead of        mysite/mydir/index.php?topic=xxx
access.log shows:
"GET /mydir/xxx HTTP/1.1" 301 239
"GET /mydir/xxx/ HTTP/1.1" 200 4831

Could you point out my errors, please?
