[thelist] web page extensions

So companies that implement this system have a lot of files named index.html
or default.html (one for each directory)? That seems a little confusing to
keep naming files the same name.

Am I way off base here?

The last "no extension" entry is a directory name, not a file name.  When
presented with just a directory, the web server will access a default
filename.  Depending on the server setup, this can be index.html,
index.htm, index.shtml, default.htm, default.html, index.cgi, default.asp...
