Re: Redirecting XML files?
Yup you got it. Even if the hosting is done on site, the webmaster and sysadmin are often two different people. We'll just go with the <redirect> approach, it makes sense in our application and probably will make sense to our users. For this app, btw, the channel developers (there are hundreds of them at all sizes and shapes of sites) are mostly webmasters not system operators.
