will the user get to see this error code or is this
something that goes on betw server and client before a
page is displayed?

still not sure on this one.  what does the 'moved'
refer to?  the requested page?  this is a small
website of about 50 static pages.  nothing's been
moved since i moved it to a new host last dec.  why
would anything move temorarily?

where would be the best place to read up on all this
server-client communication.  seems like i've got some
mega holes in my knowledge.
