    I'm not sure I know what you mean by "a link like that"? Are you referring to all the stuff after the dual.htm - the "?stream1=tld4&stream2=tacimpulse" ? If so, that stuff is there because mysite dot com is a hosting service that offers an online sitemaker and the info referred to is most likely being pulled from a database where they store the information for the sites created on their service.

    There is no difference between .html and .htm . "dual" isn't a folder, either...it's the perceived name of the page (I say "perceived" because URLs can be rewritten and there may be an underlying URL doing the processing, and in this particular case there probably is).

    Now, if you're talking about creating a dynamic link based on a querystring (anything from the ? onward is called a querystring), you're looking at a server-side programming language. There are an infinite number of ways to go about doing so, depending on what you're ultimately trying to accomplish. So suppose you tell us what you're ultimately trying to build and we'll tell you the best way to go about it.

    As TheGame Pointed out, "dual is NOT necessarily a folder name"... dual.htm could be a file name... but kinda doubt it myself... to add more confusion to this thread... this site might only have 1 file on it, and an extensive set of mod-rewrite rules in an .htaccess file that "re-writes" the url to the browser based on user selection of links that are generated out of a DB to display specific content , that's where the ? comes in, everything else after the ? is read and then the server send out specific data.

    the Original Question ? the difference between .htm and .html ? everyone is correct as there is no difference, the "file extension",,, is a setting on the server as to "what kind of files" the server either "processes and sends to the visitor"... or like an "exe" file... the server doesn't send it for display, but sends it as a "file" to be downloaded.

    this is some sort of "dynamic" site that uses this kind of linking structure,,, but just looking at the link could be deceiving as I have set .htm and .html files to calls the "ASP processor" on servers, and behaves just like a .asp page, but you have to have access to the MIME types on a server which most people don't. I would suspect it's probably a "custom" linux based site or portal/
