An unexplained glitch with my web host sometimes misdirects page requests to an incomplete path, resulting in visitors getting an error 404.  To avoid that, I'd like to use an .htaccess file.  Can you provide code for that file, which will perform the following rewrites:

1. www.mauitradewinds.com/RezEasy/Availability.htm  to www.mauitradewinds.com/RezEasy/availability.html    (change in case is intentional)

2. www.mauitradewinds.com/RezEasy/bf0001.html to
www.mauitradewinds.com/RezEasy/0001/bf0001.html

3. www.mauitradewinds.com/RezEasy/av0001.html to
www.mauitradewinds.com/RezEasy/0001/av0001.html

Would I place this .htaccess in the RezEasy folder?

Thank you.

Thank you for your comment, which appears to cover items #2 and #3 in my question.  Could you also include code to rewrite item #1?
