Ah, did not now. I look at examples - I don't read text. ;-)

But I still suggest that a dot is placed in the example because (1) it 
becomes congruent with the example in the Apache documentation, (2) all 
the Apache config files I have seen does the same, (3) I think it 
becomes easier to readers of the document to quickly grasp that the 
last word in that directive represents a file suffix.
