    Can I automate the change of file extensions when I upload files to my web site? I want my *.htm files to be automatically changed to
    *.html upon upload.

    No, Fetch does not have a feature like that. One possibility would be to write an AppleScript to do the renaming.

    This is not really what you're asking for, but GraphicConverter can change file name extensions. This would change them on your hard drive, of course, then you would upload with Fetch. You use GraphicConverter's "Convert More..." to Rename. You can select whole folders of files or just those you want and it batch processes the renaming.

    Wouldn't your local links break then?
    Why not just use .html in the first place? :)
    If the files are coming from someone on a PC,
    send them this URL:
