to .do or not to .do?

I get confused sometimes where to put the .do extension.
is setup to handle all the *.do extension:
Is it safe to assume all the abcs.do in
pages will be treated like /abcs ? Can't we just not put .do extention at all? Because sometimes I see places with .do, sometimes I don't.
I know some places if you put .do it may actually crash the program. Such as in Struts-config.xml in the action mapping area...

The rule of thumb that I follow is:
If it's in a Struts tag, don't use .do. If it's not a Struts tag, you must use .do. Examples:
<html:form action="/myAction" > <form action="/myAction.do" > <html:link action="/myAction" >click here</html:link> <a href="/myAction.do">click here</a>
While Struts tags will generally accept .do, it's generally less confusing if you leave it out.
It is sorta covered in the
