    What sites? Can you give an example of this? .html is a static webpage so those would not be typical in WordPress sites.

    The only benefit I can think of would be to preserve inbound links after converting a site made of static files to WordPress, however redirecting those links would probably be a better solution.

    There used to be a very (and I mean very) small SEO benifit from uisng the .html or .htm extension on files. The only reason that this helped was that Google would see those pages as static, as opposed to .php files, and index then at a slightly faster rate. These days that doesn't matter at all, and the only reason for using a .html extension (apart from cubecolors great advice) is if you're using a static HTML file.
