    A lot of the time when I use spotlight, basically no matter what the search is, there are HUNDREDS of ".h" files. Also, there will be some .htm and .html files as well, and I don't recall every seeing these in spotlight. What the heck are they and how do I get the to NOT show up in spotlight? Thanks

    .h are C header files. .htm and .html are web files. Did you install Developer tools by any chance into a non-default location? That's assuming why Spotlight would pick it up.
