Is there anyway for have Dreamweaver to have all new pages default to the .html extension (rather than the .htm that currently occurs)?

Yup.

Go to Edit | Preferences | New Document and select HTML documents from the pull down.  That should allow you specify the extension in the Default Extension box just below that.

close - it says I have to go to the "document type xml file" to do this - MMDocumentTypes.xml

I opened this up and in the xml there (along with other lines) is:

<documenttypes xmlns:MMString="http://www.macromedia.com/schemes/data/string/">
      <documenttype id="HTML" internaltype="HTML" winfileextension="htm,html,shtml,shtm,stm,tpl,lasso,xhtml" macfileextension="htm,html,shtml,shtm,tpl,lasso,xhtml" file="Default.html" writebyteordermark="false">
 
but I didn't see how to this would be changed.

Ah, MX.  

Change this part:

winfileextension="htm,html,shtml,shtm,stm,tpl,lasso,xhtml"

to

winfileextension="html,htm,shtml,shtm,stm,tpl,lasso,xhtml"

Sorry, change both winfileextension and macfileextension the same way.

If it still doesn't work, I don't know what to tell you.  I'm going directly from Adobe Technotes...

According to Adobe, that should have worked.  Try rebooting?

Better than MX :)

It's not a massive change, but the server behaviors are written a little better, CSS support is better, CSS editing is easier, and this problem isn't an issue.

I just did it with MX.  Did you shutdown DW and restart it?
