RE: [css-d] css file extensions?

I just renamed one of my css pages to page.txt and then to (and
changed the reference to it as well) and both worked as expected in MSIE 6
in Win2kPro SP2.

Subject: [css-d] css file extensions?

hello good list folks,

I have an html page that contains several external sheets: <LINK
REL="StyleSheet" HREF="my_styles.css" type="text/css">

I'm wondering about the file extension of the imported sheet. Is it
necessary they be named foobar.css? Will foobar.html work? Will
work (a custom extension)? (In my environment/cms/etc, it'd be much easier
if i could name them .html instead of .css.)

I suppose there are two angles: Most Importantly: does the
browser/html/code have a problem with it?  2nd: does the webserver have a
problem with it? (A mime type issue, eh, which should just be a
configuration issue)

Does the answer very by browser? (I've got to support just about
everything, including 3.0's.) Anything else I should consider?

Thanks for all your insight,
