[sf-lug] need for .html suffix

Yes, this must be the explanation: the server (lightthd) is 'deciding' the file type based on suffix (not one that it can interpret, in my <doesn't work> case) and so my browser doesn't know what to do with it and asks me. If instead I use the 'correct' suffix, all is well.
Thank you Rick and Jeff.
