Believe it or not, If you'll take the saved page - Whatever.htm - and just remname it in the windows explorer to Whatever.html it will work fine.

maybe you can start a dos window and use the
ren *.htm *.html

to rename all the htm to html

Sorry can't be done... I quote from the help...
"HTML files have an .htm file extension by default."

So when you save the file, just as the extention (which I'm sure you know!)

if you install front page i think it installed the personal web server. if it did it should be on the task bar at your lwer right as an icon, right click on it select properties once there select the administration tab then select the administration button.. by now it should launch the browser with some selection in it click on www administration it will take you to a page in tha page you should have three (3) option (service  directories  and logging) select directories once  there go to the end of the page and you will see two (2) as follows:

Option enable default documnet (uncheck this option)
default document:  Here you'll enter the name with the extension you want ie. (( index.html ))

directory browsing allowed: this is up to you

Case Close..

P.s. iis or personal web server is the one that defines the file(s) name and extension
