ive got my .htaccess file:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^$ index.php [nc]
RewriteRule ^(.*)\.htm$ $1.php [nc]
RewriteRule ^(.*)\.html$ $1.php [nc]
RewriteRule ^about(/)?$ about.php [nc]
RewriteRule ^portfolio(/)?$ portfolio.php [nc]
RewriteRule ^portfolio(/)([0-9/]+)(/)?$ portfolio.php?pid=$1 [nc]
RewriteRule ^contact(/)?$ contact.php [nc]
RewriteRule ^sitemap(/)?$ sitemap.php [nc]
ErrorDocument 400 /400.htm
ErrorDocument 401 /401.htm
ErrorDocument 402 /402.htm
ErrorDocument 403 /403.htm
ErrorDocument 404 /404.htm
ErrorDocument 500 /500.htm
ErrorDocument 502 /502.htm

ive got my custom error pages in folder called errors like:

W:/apache/site/htdocs/errors

main pages exist under:

W:/apache/site/htdocs

if an error occurs like a page not found etc i what my URL to look like:

http://www.site.com/error/400/  <---- obviously this will show the 400.htm contents
http://www.site.com/error/401/
http://www.site.com/error/402/
http://www.site.com/error/403/
http://www.site.com/error/404/
http://www.site.com/error/500/
http://www.site.com/error/502/

but it int working.

Then you should build 404.htm to php-header('Location:") redirect to /error/400/

I don't see the benefit of this however, because you loose reference to the actual file/url on which the error occurred.

The error page doesn't do a redirect. It just loads /404.html as the content for the current url.

Have you made sure you have 404.html in your correct directory?

Then, if you want the correct url's build 404.html to redirect to /error/404/, if you realy need this tidy urls.
