Preview With bug

HI. I changed the default template's extension from .html to .htm and when I click on "Preview With: [Internet Explorer]" It launches the browser looking for index.html - I get a page not found.

I guess this part isn't sensetive to extensions and when you removed the need for an index.html "whether you have one on your site or not" this broke.

Did you change the publish location URL property?

(For previewing on your own computer, using file://, as opposed to FTP, there is no publish location URL property -- you have to have an index.html or it will generate one for you.)

It was using file copy, and it didn't generate an index.html for me.
