    I've always used '.xhtml' as the file extention for pages I do. I don't know why but I was feeling some what schizophrenic tonight. I was even questioning whether this was a valid file extention, and not something that I'd just assumed when I switched over to web standards. Dreamweaver doesn't recognise the pages without browsing under 'ALL Files' - "buhhh;" anyway...

    Most if not all pages I've seen done using xhtml still retain .html/.htm extention or if people use php etc... Does it really matter what extention is used ?

    To the best of my knowledge, it doesn't matter for static pages.
    However, if you have php/asp/jsp/aspx etc code embedded in your static contents, you need to have the appropriate extension. The extension tells the server which parser to activate when it encounters an opening script tag. If the file extension is .htm, any server script will be ignored.
