For some reason Macromedia ships the PC version of Dreamweaver MX configured to create HTML files with the extension as .htm
instead of the more universal .html
. Mac users aren't affected by this, their version already writes new HTML files with the .html
I have written a small extension that patches this behaviour after a colleague at work complained about this: Sane Document Types
I'm not sure how other versions of Dreamweaver behave as I no longer have installs of these to play around with.
