I don't think so. If we're going to change those tags, then should become , which I also disagree with.

Hyphens should be used, IMO, to replace spaces, rather than full stops.

Nope, not all, I literally said only globa.asa and globa.asax, there are tons of valid tags with dots. – YOU Apr 14 '11 at 6:42
@YOU - yes and my "argument" is that if we change one, we should change all, for consistency. Tags lose their usefulness if they're not consistent. So - I guess the question is why should global.asax/global.asa be hyphenated? I see no good, compelling reason to. – Rob Apr 14 '11 at 6:46
sorry, I disagree with the idea about "if we change one, we should change all", Jeff already changed global.aspx to global-aspx before too. I am just mentioning there is another one "global.asa", and should blacklist both for future tagging. – YOU Apr 14 '11 at 6:47
@YOU, well I disagree. Wouldn't it be boring if we were all the same though =-) Changing a tag because of a technical limitation of the underlying platform is a poor solution. – Rob Apr 14 '11 at 6:53
@Rob, agree about "because of a technical limitation of the underlying platform is a poor solution", so do you think leaving the broken tag as is better? – YOU Apr 14 '11 at 6:55
@YOU - I think that in an ideal world, (1) the limitation of the underlying platform should be resolved so that a tag of global.asa is valid and then (2) global-asax should be returned to global.asax. Note, I said "ideal world" as I have no idea how much effort would be involved and if it'd be worth the ROI. Tags need to be consistent & discoverable. – Rob Apr 14 '11 at 7:56
