Sadly, with the current version of SWISH-E there is *no* way to do that;
the concept "no suffix" does not exist there.

Possible solutions or workarounds:
- rename all the files with a special suffix and include that in the list,
and use ReplaceRules to change the suffix back to none; the rename your
files back;
- hope the coming new version (when?) will allow you to do it without all
this effort, so wait for that
- try my current (*very* preliminary and unfinished, unsupported) code that
*can* do it (and allows you to define what "html files" are as well)
- if you decided to wait for the next version and it cannot do it, wait for
mine (no time frame though)
- finally: *possibly* SWISH++ can do it but I haven't checked its features.
