Ok, didn't show the whole problem...

I will read the doc anyway, but why "questions.html" keep it "t"??

 >>> test=['03.html', '06.html', 'questions.html', '04.html', 
'toc.html', '01.html', '05.html', '07.html', '02.html', '08.html']
 >>> test[4]
'toc.html'
 >>> test[4].strip('.html')
'oc'
 >>> test[2].strip('.html')
'questions'

Thanks.

Guy
