When creating a new Stylesheet, there is no instruction not to include the .css part of the name.
Users and students sometimes include the file extension, which creates a file such as "myStyles.css.css" and they then get confused when their html only references "myStyles.css", which is how it appears in the SETTINGS tree.
It is slightly more obvious when making Script files because you have to select the type, though even there instruction might be helpful.
Maybe alert users only if they add the .css (or .js or .xml) file extension to avoid unnecessary clutter on the screen, if that's a valid UI/UX behavior?
On the other hand, creating a Partial View gives the instruction on the screen.
Whatever the solution, it should be consistent.
Later we'll redo the create stylesheet dialog, but for now all files will be checked for their extension and an extension will only be added if not already a part of the name.
