You are right, I was mistaken about the .htaccess file. Apparently I was looking at the directory above. The rewrite engine is on, there are rewrite conditions and rule for a 301 redirect.
A 301 redirect will not achieve what I am trying to accomplish. I am surprised that there is not a way to serve up a page in the CMS as the index.html for a subdomain. Wordpress has their multisite features, which performs a similar task--multiple websites in a single WP install, just not the way I want to do it.
What about subdomain forwarding with masking? That isn't a perfect solution, but might be acceptable. I suppose that something I would do with HTML... but is there a better way?
