Hi Jim,

I did a http://groups.google.com search for "html file extension
standard". This thread ranked first:


One of the posters made the comment that for some reason, several search
engines would index his ".htm" pages as ".html" pages. So when users
found a page on his site and tried to click through, they would end up
with a 404.

So that's not good.

I'd stick with ".html".



> HTML 4.0 or XHTML 1.0?  In other words does the standards indicate
> my web pages should be page1.htm or page1.html.  Is there a good
reason to
> use one over the other?
