Off-the-cuff idea: you can try redirecting mypage.htm to itself, and mark
that rule [L], then follow it with the catchall redirection rule.

	'last|L' (last rule)
	Stop the rewriting process here and don't apply any more rewriting
	rules. This corresponds to the Perl last command or the break
	command from the C language. Use this flag to prevent the
	currently rewritten URL from being rewritten further by following
	rules. For example, use it to rewrite the root-path URL ('/') to a
	real one, e.g., '/e/www/'.

...from http://httpd.apache.org/docs/mod/mod_rewrite.html#RewriteRule

Something like:

	RewriteBase	/
	RewriteRule	^(mypage\.htm)$	$1	[L]
	RewriteRule	^(.*)$	http://websitea.com/$1	[R]
