    Try this:

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^(.*)\.php$ $1.html [R=permanent]

    The .html URL would need to work.

    Options +Indexes
    Options +FollowSymlinks
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^([^.]+)\.html$ $1.php [L]

    And you can't have both a mod_rewrite and 301 redirect for the same URLs because it'll loop. Apache says...I want .php, no it's .html, no .php, no....grrrr!!!! :D

    I will say though, that theirs no seo reasoning behind changing from php to html, I don't know why people worry with that. Mod_rewrite is only worth it to get url's without multiple variables.

    Or to not show file extensions at all. They are of no value to the visitor, make the url longer (i like short urls) and when you want to change from one implementation to the other you won't have to change all your urls and potentially lose incoming links, break visitor's bookmarks etc. :)

    Haven't been able yet to remove aspx file extensions though. MultiViews works great for php files but I think I'll have to use mod_rewrite for aspx files.

    Or you can simply name them .html from the start and allow HTML files through your PHP interpreter

    AddType application/x-httpd-php htm html php
    AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .htm .html
