Nope.  PmWiki will do no "conversion" of URLs.  What Pm is talking
about is just making PmWiki ignore any .html suffix that might appear
in the URL for wiki pages.  So, if you want to publish URLs to your
PmWiki installation as 


or as 


PmWiki will treat them equivalently.

However, your email does twiddle my brain a bit.  Assuming for the
moment that PmWiki ignores a .html suffix, should it also ignore a
.htm suffix?  Seems like there should be a user-defined array of
suffixes to ignore.
