When I use the htaccess to redirect to another page, what´s written in the header: a 301 redirect?

It depends on what directive you use within .htaccess to accomplish the redirect. You have a choice of 301 or 302 when working with Redirect, and a choice of 301, 302, a silent (internal) redirect, and other options with mod_rewrite.

Sorry, wrong forum for my followup. Moved my reply to forum 23 (Website Technology Issues).

if you have access to a *nix box you can use lynx to see :

lynx -head [yoursite.com...]

and it will say :

HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found

for a 404 or something else for a 301, 302 etc.
