I had a suspicion there was something like a RewriteRule happening, though I've never used one. The directory name "isoredirect" seemed like a clue, but, since I don't have administrative access to centos.org, I had to ask for more knowledgeable help. Your answer also seems to indicate that changing the wiki data from "[mirror.centos.org..." to "[isoredirect.centos.org..." is considered bad style in this case, the preference being a RewriteRule I'll move on to the next issue I have with wiki.c.o/Download, which I'll address in a new posting when I recall what it is.
