When I try to extract different archives, files with the extension *.html never unpacked. Files with other extensions of the same archives successfully decompressed. Why is this happening?

I have Ubuntu 9.10 and Unrar 0.0.1.

Your version sounds awfully out of date. Are you sure it's so low? Try updating it with

sudo apt-get install unrar

Or get the latest Linux version at this site:

wget http://www.rarlab.com/rar/rarlinux-4.0.b3.tar.gz
