It's fairly easy to write a PERL script to rename your files but another
question arises in "Will I have to change all my URLs in my html files to
include the missing 'l' ?".
Well the answer is no since you can already write your URLs like:

<A HREF="myfile.html"> This is a valid link to the local file myfile.htm on
my PC</A>

The advantage is quite obvious isn't it?

Good luck.
