you should never mix them within a server configuration, especially if you are using mod_rewrite to internally rewrite urls as you would with most CMSs.
Makes sense - just to clarify my Redirect 301's are in completely separate VirtualHost containers to the VirtualHost being redirected to, which also means that mod rewrite doesn't have to process the classic method of redirection for every single page view. I know it's only a squillionth of a millisecond but I like to minimise the server's effort as much as possible...
Thx for clarification of the .htaccess method / infinite redirect possibility...!
