[wp-hackers] mod rewrite problems

Sorry to bother you again guys.

I'm trying to link to an external html file from within wordpress and so far
it doesn't seem to work. By external I mean a user clicks on a link and a
new window opens, displaying the html file without the wordpress template
around it. 

The html file sits in the in the plugin directory. If I use an absolute link
to the file it works, but I would like to make a mod rewrite rule to conceal
the actual url.


My htaccess file looks like this:

# BEGIN WordPress

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

RewriteEngine On

RewriteBase /digitalcamera/

RewriteCond %


RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

RewriteRule . /digitalcamera/index.php


# END WordPress


I've added:

RewriteRule ^/mypage/help.php$ /wp-content/plugins/myplugin/help.php



But it doesn't work. Wordpress simply displays "404 not found" in the
content area.

Any ideas?
