[Discuss] How to write .htaccess rules

Can someone point me to a good explanation of this?  I've found some
that look understandable, but my rule still doesn't work.

My problem is that I rewrote a wordpress site into drupal, and I would
like old links to some pages on the old wordpress site to translate to the
equivalent page on the new drupal site.

For instance, the page
<> should now
be <>.

My attempt at this rule is:

RewriteRule wordpress/?page_id=20&id=([0-9]+) "http://serpent.serpentpublication$1"

Based on the log, I can see that apache is definitely seeing this rule,
but it isn't for some reason serving the drupal page.  Before I switched
the site over, I managed to get a rule that sent all wordpress pages to
a page that redirects to the home page of the drupal site, so people
aren't stuck with just an error, but I want them to get the current
version of the page they were looking for.

It can't be any new note. When you look at the keyboard, all the notes
are there already. But if you mean a note enough, it will sound
different. You got to pick the notes you really mean!
