Subject [Bug 57584] AddHandler etc. documentation "extension" unintuitive
Date Wed, 15 Apr 2015 21:10:46 GMT

--- Comment #3 from Tim B <> --- seems clear to

The httpd documentation is aimed at technically minded people rather than end
users of websites.

In >6 years of commercial technical support I helped some webmasters who didn't
realise that files could have more than one extension. When discussing it, that
was the phrasing: “more than one extension”.

Filenames certainly can have more than one *substring*. I feel that “string”,
and hence “substring”, is actually less clear than the term “extension” – the
latter at least suggest that it's something that goes onto the end.
