This is a very good reply, I am about to be in the same situation where i have a site that has htm pages but i wish to move over to php-nuke possibly how does this work? for example if one of my pages is www.mywebsite.com/documents/tech/adsl.htm my new php site wont look like that so how does the above example work? My site is a few hundred pages of htm at the moment, with loads of sites linking to various pages over the years and i dont want to loose those links people have.

...and over time, add new pages with URLs of www.mywebsite.com/documents/tech/adsl and then use mod_negotiation or mod_rewrite to resolve those extensionless URLs to either .html or .php files (it will no longer matter).
By getting rid of the 'file extensions' on your page URLs, you ensure that you'll never have to go through the exercise of changing your page URLs again.
