FrontPage on PC with Unix host .htaccess strategy

FrontPage on PC with Unix host .htaccess strategy

FrontPage on PC with Unix host .htaccess strategy

I used FrontPage to develop a website that I host on a Unix sytem w/an Apache server.  I would now like to use the  .htaccess files to control error redirection (via ErrorDocument). The .htaccess files work correctly, but they have to be handled outside of the FrontPage facility, which I find cumbersome.

In FrontPage, the .htaccess files don't show up in the source lists and it doesn't update them properly on the server.

So, does anyone know of a good strategy (or trick) for handling the .htaccess files WITHIN the FrontPage facility?

One tip was to rename them to to something that FP would recognize (like htaccess.html), publish them w/FP and then rename them back after the FTP transfer.  That solves half the problem, but is also cumbersome.
