-1 -- The filename should indicate how the file will be treated. .html 
means "this is a static html file", whereas ".pt" says "this is TAL".

I'm sure your html editor can be told to use HTML markup for a different 
extension. I'm not sure how often people preview raw templates in a 
browser. I've never found it terribly useful, since they'll lack all the 
dynamic elements and so won't be a true representation of the end result.
