You have a plethora of possibilities.
* If you run your own Apache webserver, use rewrite rules (mod_rewrite).
Advantage: you don't need old files lying around.
* If you run IIS, it probably has something similar, but I'm not
familiar with the "specials" of IIS.
* Make good use of HTTP Protocol Error Code 301 (moved permanently)
* If your website is hosted and you can't control the server, leave a
small file with the old name, containing a META Refresh tag, and a link
for browsers that don't support refresh.
Disadvantage: cruft - you have to keep the old file names.

Amedee,

I am using your suggestion 4. I know I don't run my own web server. I
have know idea if I run IIS or not. I have know idea how to make use
(poor or good) of HTTP Protocol Error Code 301. Thanks
