            You can set up a directory:

            yoursite.com/yourdirectory/default.html

            If the page is a default.html or index.html, then you don't have to list the
            entire URL, just the directory:

            yoursite.com/yourdirectory/

            Or, you can set up your server to not worry about file extensions. Though
            that can be a bit of a chore if you are editing the files offline.

            Or, you can use URL rewriting to point any URI and any specific page on your
            site. That would require mod_rewrite on Apache or something like ISAPI
            rewrite on IIS.

                Put your page in it's own folder, name it index.html or default.asp and then tell them "it's at www.mysite.com/photos" of course, you'd have to have every page on your site named index.html and in a seperate folder, so how important is that to you? I think most people get the .html part. If not, write it down for them.

                    You could always use www.tinyurl.com

                    Just type in your url and it will produce a small link for you that you can
                    give to your client.

                      You can also create/modify your .htaccess file (assuming your on this
                      platform) and create a 301 redirect. So, if you have a page
                      www.mysite.com/website_portfolio/featured_client.html you could create a
                      redirect for www.mysite.com/portfolio that would automatically send them to
                      the page intended. Hope that makes sense!

                        thank you for all the great replies. ya more difficult than I'd imagined. I thought simply building an HTML site, you might not need the ext. showing, kind of like a jpg file or mov file, that you dont have to show it, and it works :) Nonetheless. Not that big of a deal. Just wanted to knoe before I started designing a sites and pages. thanks all so much.

                          Or you could use Content Negotiation (on Apache; I think IIS has something
                          similar?) to tell the server to look for, say, 'myfile.php', then
                          'myfile.html', when it gets a request for 'myfile'.

                          http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/content-negotiation.html
