comment Stopping duplicate H1 and title from dynamic content
I agree with Nick -- this ain't a good idea to have some sort of "serial numbers" in the main title, unless it is very important part of the system (like, ticket ID/accident number/question number) -- but even then it still will be better to have it separate (from visual point at least). In your case (show uploaded images) I personally would be annoyed as a user to see any IDs there.

comment input type=“email”
@dmsnell I absolutely agree with you. When I started to work at my current job they gave me very short email address (it supposed to be temporal address, but I was using it for nearly 2 years) -- a@mycompany.com (yep, just one letter before @). When I tried to register on some sites (forums, product support etc) it was rejected as invalid quite few times. In the end, they created me an alias (like andriy@mycompany.com) so I could use it instead. I'm still using both of them -- depending on situation.

@dmsnell This example was taken from a webpage and not written by myself. I'm guilty for not checking it... but, on another had, this question is not about "how to properly validate email address on client side". In general, not to use pattern at all will be a better idea (why duplicate the functionality (pattern) if it is already provided by browser), unless there are specific requirements.

comment URL Rewrite to subdomains?
@David I have updated my answer. Configuring Apache to accept any sub-domain name (*.domain.com) is out of the scope of this answer and the whole site as well. If you need this -- then better ask it at sister site -- ServerFault. I apologies if I STILL did not understood you correctly. If that is the case -- please elaborate.

comment How do I run a subdirectory on a separate server?
You may want to create Outbound URL Rewrite rule that is applied to the headers or the content of an HTTP response (the bottom part of URL Rewrite module interface) to fix such image URLs on blog pages. Just keep in mind that this sort of rewriting is MUCH slower compared to the incoming URL Rewriting rules (obviously, as you have to process whole page compared to just URL) which will add even more delay when serving such blog pages. This should work, although I have not used them myself (no reason).

comment Reporting Copied (Stolen) Product Descriptions to Google
From my experience -- Google does not care to do anything about this -- our content (product description, images, URL hierarchy and even parts of interface) was copied letter-by-letter so many times on different sites (sites from the same country as well as abroad), sometimes without changing anything, even leaving "contact OUR_PHONE_NUMBER" etc in place. We stopped worrying about this long time ago. Maybe because we as e-commerce site were doing product description as a compilation of most important parts from the manufacturer site .. so it is already kind of duplicate ... unsure...

comment How do I run a subdirectory on a separate server?
If you cannot/do not want to use AAR, but can install some software on your IIS 7 server, then you may also look at Helicon Ape. "Helicon Ape provides support for Apache .htacces and .htpasswd configuration files in Microsoft IIS. It literally implements Apache configuration model and nearly all Apache modules in a single IIS add-on, not only making IIS compatible with Apache, but also extending it’s functionality by a number of highly essential features."
