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)
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.
