.htc (File extension)

A file containing a behavior handler script for use in MSIE browsers.

This file contains an HTML Component (HTC). These used to be called scriptlets but have been evolved and renamed when used in an MSIE web browser. The Windows Script Host environment continues to use scriptlets but these have also evolved into something quite different to an HTC.

Refer to the Element.addBehavior() topic for a more detailed explanation of how these files are used.
