Indeed - I don't know of a modern filesystem that has a fixed number

past (though I _do_ use a distinction between .htm and .html on my own
web page - the web server doesn't care, the browsers don't care, but I
have some scripts that distinguish what do to based on how _I_ have
named the files.  In short, my own search and 'what's new' scripts
ignore pages named .htm).

So it sounds like we are in agreement here (just so you don't think
I'm trolling ;-)


Ahhh, I see.

I wondered why there are web pages (at Sega's US website) named .jhtml and .xhtml etc. I thought they were special types of html pages, but I guess they can be named anything aslong as they have "htm" or "html" afterwards, or as long as the HTML define tags are included in the page?

PS. To try and keep this on topic, is it possible to surf the 'net on say a VAX? I don't expect it to run Flash etc. but basic text and images? Or would memory be a problem?
