That should not be necessary.  Swish doesn't do anything special with
".html" files unless told to.

You can use -v (indexing verbose) to see what files are being indexed.
You can also use -T properties to list the files as they are indexed.
So you should be able to see what files are indexed.  Use -T and -v and
you might get an idea how ReplaceRules is working.

Makes sense.  So either use -S fs method to index (instead of spidering)
or maybe try the --convert-links option of wget.  Read the wget man page
for details.
