    it's not clear to me what you want. do you want a generalized conversion? or a specific conversion or just that url.
    Or do you want your read.php to convert the file and send it to the new SEO Url.

    Not that I know very much about .htaccess.

    form what you said I think you want to do this.
    but essentially you need to rewrite.

    and obviously would be a functional url  - correct.
    if its is generalized how would art_id=number 

    correlate to a subject.

    if you had




    and needed to convert with .htaccess it would make more sense to me.

    What is your blog software?

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
