Here's the relevant part of our .htaccess file:

RewriteEngine On

RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^download.shtml     /en/downloads [R]

# Don't rewrite requests for files in MediaWiki subdirectories,
# MediaWiki PHP files, HTTP error documents, favicon.ico, or robots.txt
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/(stylesheets|images|skins)/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/(redirect|texvc|index).php
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/error/(40(1|3|4)|500).html
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/favicon.ico
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/robots.txt

# Rewrite http://wiki.domain.tld/article properly, this is the main rule
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php/?title=$1 [L,QSA]

The problem is, we're fighting against the existing MediaWiki rules, and I'm having a hard time telling what's actually going on. The problem seems to be that when we visit download.shtml, it brings us to a wiki page, but says "There is currently no text in this page." when actually when I visit the page using /en/downloads it does display our downloads page.

You might want to try adding a condition for your downloads.shtml page so it ignores it in your second rewrite rule. Something like this.

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/downloads.shtml
