Well, you could give your files any extension you want, but they'd still be simple TXT files... That's where .NFO comes from...

Oh, I had nearly forgotten that files were a lot simpler back then so there wasn't need for different, fancy formats! I thought word processing platforms were like the home computer market overall in the 70's and 80's: A large variety of platforms each with their proprietary formats and accessories, all of which are incompatible with any other platform. ^^;
