My default home page is a page (as opposed to a post or recent posts). When visiting the site, htaccess resolves the URL to http://www.example.com/
If, however, you were to try to visit index.html for the home page by typing in http://www.example.com/index.html, WordPress redirects this to http://www.example.com/index.html/ (note the trailing slash).
I can't figure out which file in wp-includes to edit to fix this problem. It's interfering with a lot of our tracking and analytics efforts, because "index.html" is not appearing as a visible and viable page.
Thank you for any help!
