Is there a way to force mod_rewrite to rewrite URLs in the HTML it gets back from (rewritten) request URL?

No. mod_rewrite does now know anything about the content; it operates purely on URIs, Headers and Environment-Variables. If you are using mod_rewrite to proxy content, you might find that mod_proxy_html is what you are looking for.

You can also use modproxyperlhtml which has better performance and more features than mod_proxy_html
