Is it possible to have an INDEX.HTM instead of an index.html ? - 02/02/2010
Is it possible to have an INDEX.HTM instead of an index.html ?

Our Hyper-Text document in the Web Space of Web Ring has been entirely created using the Free-DOS operating system. Free-DOS does not natively support case sensitive long names, though the DOSLFN driver may be used for handling them. Without DOSLFN, Free-DOS handles only non-case sensitive short names. Names are all converted to upper case, and can have a maximum of eight carachters for the file name and three characters for the file type (extension, after the dot). For example, INDEX.HTM. This is common to most DOS systems, such as MS-DOS, DR-DOS, PC-DOS and others. The problem is that the Web Space manager of Web Ring automatically creates an index.html file, even after repeatedly trying to erase that file. This is most annoying, because all Hyper Text pages of our document follow DOS conventions, they all are named in upper case and never have more than eight characters for the file name, and three for the file type, for instance CMPHSB.HTM for our page on the History of Computing Science. Besides, all internal links point to those DOS short names, and changing them to case sensitive long names would be a tremendous work. How can we keep them as they are, as DOS short names ? The document is listed in the category "Science", there are very few documents in that category. It is located at the Uniform Resource Locator:

We can probably arrange that, yes. Give it a bit to take affect.
