    ErrorDocument in .htaccess not working

    I have added the ErrorDocument command to my htaccess file to use my own error pages but it is conflicting with one of the rewrite rules (second section below) and I just keep getting the default browser 404 error page. The rewrite condition line tells it to leave filenames alone and the url to my error page works perfectly when typed into a browser. Can anyone help?

    <Files .htaccess>
    order allow,deny
    deny from all
    </Files>
    Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteBase /
    # 301 Redirect all requests that don't contain a dot or trailing slash to
    # include a trailing slash
    # except for form POSTS
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/$
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !\.
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} !POST$
    RewriteRule ^(.*) %{REQUEST_URI}/ [R=301,L]

    # Rewrites urls in the form of /parent/child/
    # but only rewrites if the requested URL is not a file or directory
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule ^(.+)$ index.php?page=$1 [QSA]

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.safari-club\.co.uk
    RewriteRule (.*) http://www.safari-club.co.uk/$1 [R=301,L]

    ErrorDocument 404 /errordocs/error404.htm

    Did you:
    Edit your .htaccess file in a text editor not a word processor?
    Add a few blank lines at the end of the file?
    Upload in ASCII (text) not Binary?
    Upload to the correct folder (i.e. htdocs if you want this to apply to your entire site)?

    Asking the "stupid questions" since usually when I have something go wrong it's because I did something that makes me slap my head and say "Well, duh..."

    Good luck,
