Okay, that looks promising. Thus the URL:
should set the following environmental variables:

MZ_HTTP_HOST	= multizilla.mozdev.org
VHOST		= multizilla

and the following server vars to:

HTTP_HOST	= multizilla.mozdev.org
DOCUMENT_ROOT	= /mozdev/sandbox/data/helm/htdoc
REQUEST_URI	= /news/news.html

Your second RewriteCond seems to be included for scripting,
but I can be wrong of course.

I do wonder if this changes the browsers location bar to something like:
sub.domain.tlc/index.php?project=multizilla&page=/news/news.html ???

Thanks again!
