Re: You can take advantage of 404 error to an usable redirection using REQUEST_URI ...
Whilst this is effective, a line in the .htaccess such as:
RewriteRule ^profiles/([A-Za-z0-9-]+) showprofile.php?profile=$1 [L,NC,QSA]
will throw the requested profile in a variable $profile to the showprofile.php page.
You can further enhance the url (e.g http://servername/profiles/Jerry/homeaddress/index.htm) and the second variable value homeaddress becomes available in $url_array when used below $url_array=explode("/",$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']);
Hope this helps - Works well for me
