IMHO, Kevin et al., the period or word dot plus the word extension in
the same sentence are redundant.

Kevin asks if he should use the period (or dot, or whatever) before
extensions in text.

Lori responds:


I always use the dot. It helps to make the extension stand out from
text. If the extension is part of a computer filename, you might try
a font
like Courier to show that it's a filename.

For example:

<text font>Save the graphic in <filename font>.PCX <text font>format.
