Hi all,

Just pulling this out to a new thread, since it's a bit buried and
confusing where it was.

OK, I need to ask this... can a tag path include a file extension? The
FAQ poses the question but there's no answer yet.

I've had a look around and can't find a definitive answer - the wiki
suggests that no, the tag target URL cannot end in a file extension.

I'm prompted to ask since the new version of Blogger uses .html
extensions on its "label" pages (why they didn't just say "tags" I
cannot fathom). I'm wondering if this is valid.

Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question, but the way I read it
none of the current documentation actually gives a clear answer. I
like definite answers over making informed wild guesses ;)
