301 redirect ascii subfolder to utf-8 subfolder

I need the utf-8 gurus' help on this one

I have an old site with ascii folders and subfolders which I'm 301 redirecting to corresponding unicode folder and subfolder names.

In the .htaccess file, I've been doing this:

Redirect 301 /ascii/ http://mysite.com/unicode/
Redirect 301 /ascii/ascii2/ http://mysite.com/unicode/unicode2/

The first redirect works fine for a one level deep folder.

But the second redirect only seems to convert the 1st folder into unicode and ignores the subfolder unicode2.

In other words, the redirect "Redirect 301 /ascii/ascii2/ http://mysite.com/unicode/unicode2/" takes the user to http://mysite.com/unicode/ascii2/

Anyone have any idea why this is?

My bad. Correct answer was "Broken domain, please sell to me cheap"

:D I've done too much work on it, including hundreds of 301s, so I can never sell it!

Gamma made the noob error of not using example.com for his example URL.
