Subject [Bug 57584] AddHandler etc. documentation "extension" unintuitive

--- Comment #3 from Tim B <isoma@c8h10n4o2.org.uk> ---
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/mod_mime.html#multipleext seems clear to
me.

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.
