As I (poorly) told Beauregard, I long ago standardized to three
character extensions, when my network had 4 *nix boxes and 2 win boxes,
and all my development and production servers were on the *nix boxes.
As I said, .htm worked seamlessly, and .html didn't. Having to chose a
convention (standard) I chose the one with less considerations. Then

As an aside, how many times do people here admonish for the dependence
on js because a percentage of visitors would be impacted, but then some
of those same Dutch uncle's go out of their way to disregard anything
that could be seen as MS centric.
As far as naming convention goes, consistent is good, simple and
consistent is better. At least IMHO.
