    404 handler returns 200 rather than 404


    I have setup a 404 handler page (by setting error404 in umbraco.settings to the node id of the page). However, 200 error code is returned rather than 404. Is that by design?

    It does result in the search engines indexing it as a existing page rather than seeing it has a page not found.

    Can't you just create a usercontrol with 


    Response.Status = "404 Not Found";
    Response.StatusCode = 404;


    in the page load and add it to a macro and insert it in the page?
