    remember the old DOS days, it goes back to when you could only have 3 letter extensions, times have changed....hence html.

    In the bad old days it made a difference. Not so sure now, though.

    Most people play it safe and use .html

    It doesn't really matter what you use, as most of my pages end up being .shtml anyway, but when I do, I use .html, as 95% of the internet does.

    Use what you want, I really don't care which people use.

    Post .htm/.html

    Alright, when someone asks you the difference of .htm/.html extension what do you say? I really think there both the same and its just a preference. Am i wrong?

    On my site out of about 815 people, 50 of them used the 3.0 browser. And .html does work in that browser.

    You can pretty much call anything anything.

    I renamed an MP3 to .ds9 and it still worked; I made a few pages called .htmf and they still worked. In fact I made one called page.helloworld and IE had no trouble with it.

    In most modern apps, the filename is just to tell the operating system what to open it with, but you could reconfigure it any way you like. The app will sniff the file header and if it makes sense, open it anyway whatever it called.

    Why not change all your images to .html and all your web pages to .gif ! What fun
