If you load the just the regular rules, then you are limited to the 5 or 10 levels of the prestige
classes. If you load the epic rules, you have unlimited progression.

classes with fewer than 10 levels are capped even when using epic rules:
"A ten-level prestige class beyond can also be advanced beyond 10th level, but
only if the character level of the advancing character is already 20th or
higher. A class with fewer than ten levels cannot be advanced beyond the
maximum described for that class, regardless of the character level of the
advancing character." (RSRD)
The reason being that the 3 and 5 level prestige classes didn't have any point
for you to go farther and/or didn't have enough time to establish patterns
for continuing to gain abilities. (The one 7 level one was also thematically
linked to having exactly that many.)
