I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No difference as far as I know, it's just shorter. htm was introduced because lots of extensions have three characters.

HTM was introduced by Microsoft, as you well know that MS-DOS could only handle 3 letter extenstions.

HTML the four letter extension is used by the traditional UNIX servers (apache).

It makes no difference to the way the file is handled by the browser.
