They don't include the .php extension as well but I have plenty of PHP sites that are fully indexed. I've seen lots of .pl pages indexed, including some .pl links I have included in some .php pages. It's the same concept, when google robot goes to index a page it performs an HTTP request, so the page is executed like in a normal browser. If the result is human readable content (i.e. HTML), google will index it. You can't set cookies or session variables though. 's Rodrigo Fonseca.
