How do I suppress Errors completely?

Hi everyone,
I'm trying to suppress .net error messages from the client browser for security reasons (ie. I want as little info displayed).
I have modified the global.asax application_error method to redirect to a simple html page.  However,some errors are still showing typical .net error messages.  A cross site scripting error will show typical .net messages instead of redirecting.
The customErrors mode is set to "On" in my webconfig, but I would like it so that ALL errors get redirected to my html page.
How do I do that?

Hi,

Try adding a CustomErrors Section to your Web.Config. You can specify a page for all errors such as:

<customErrors defaultRedirect="MainErrorPage.aspx" mode="On"/>

or have more specific page redirects depending on error:

<customErrors defaultRedirect="MainErrorPage.aspx" mode="On">  
   <error statusCode="404" redirect="FileNotFoundError.aspx" />
    <error statusCode="403" redirect="AccessDeniedError.aspx" />
</customErrors>

Hope that helps,
R
