anything similar about the file creation dates?
pure guess- some type of file editor that makes a backup version before the
user makes a change.
Well I can't tell you the date of the file because at the moment, even though I have the "last modified" tab visible in the dreamweaver file browser I have no dates for any of my files. Don't know why.
but I did discover some new things about them...
1. They only exist on the live site (funny that I didn't see that before)
2. They are only visible through dreamweaver.
I think you are most likely right that it's a file editor making some kind of back up file.

compare file sizes, and dates.

some ftp programs hide system files which start with a .period
