    Save As Type files in myword editor

    Hi:

    My word editor, if it matters, is Notetab Light. It's a souped-up Notepad basically. And when I create a file in it (which in my case is, 99.9% of the time, text) and click "Save" or "Save As", it brings up the Save As window. And there, the Save As Type bar with its down arrow lists the following file types to pick from.

    text files (txt, ovl)
    DOS Ascii (.txt, asc)
    Test Outlines (otl)
    Text Templates (tpl)
    HTML (html, ?html, xml, asp, css)
    EBCDIC (cbl, cob, cpy, ddt, bws)
    Ini files (ini)
    All files

    My question with all these files to pick from, is there a valid need for "all files"? What IS "all files" (The category lists no file types per se.) If I save a text file as "all lfiles" it saves it as a .txt file btw.

    I've created my own website...a collection of moving, sad and happy and humorous poems which I would like to share with others. They come from stories my dad used to tell me when I was a kid. If you could glance at my site and if you know of others who might enjoy it and perhaps tell them of it, I would be most appreciative. Thank you.

    All files means that you can save it with any extension you want.It also means that if you are browsing for a file,it will list all known extensions,rather than just one.
