Great. I think I'll use your technique and place it in my custom 404
page per Robert's suggestion.

Isn't that backwards? Spiders frown upon client side re-direction and
you'd be using CF to output a client side refresh. The spiders might
pick up the change for sure, but they also may also drop the site
altogether as a result.

I would think handling it all via <CFLOCATION> would be more SE

Thanks to both you and Robert.
