so i added

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule (.*) /404.php

to the .htaccess file so that it will redirect invalid requests for php 
files to the customized 404 page...

but now it redirects all requests for everything but php files (eg. html 
files or pdfs) to the 404 without even checking whether they actually exist.

it probably has something to do with the (.*), right?  could someone 
help please?
