| DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.
Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the
column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear
Webby Humor Letter.
This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly
because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Tech Support Pits:

why are some files on the net ".htm" and some are ".html" ?
Which should I use for my pages?
Nowadays ".html" is correct.
All of the better servers are configured to recognize ".htm",
but ONLY IF no file by the same name and "html" is found.
However, you can't count on the server to be configured
correctly (unless you are on a webby server, of course).
Deep down there are some real reasons for keeping
".htm" and ".html" apart. ".htm" is from DOS and
Windows 3.1 and early versions of the HTM Language.
Those files can not be used easily,or pulled into other files
as virtual includes like headers, footers, etc. You CAN,
but only one of them. With the newer ".html" files you
can merge in many different include files.
Therefore, whenever possible, use ".html".
