Number of html files

Hello to all!
I'm really new of this, i don't know unix so i have to ask a stupid question for you but important for me.
I need to know how many files .html there are on a unix server on a specified folder (and of course on their subfolders).
The same command in DOS is dir *.html /s.
Can you help me?

"cd" to the "folder" (directory) in which the
files are located.


ls -l *.html | wc -l

...this will return the count of the number of .html files
in the current directory

But tell me one more things, it's possible to have also a number of all html files contained in all the subfolders?

A quick way to just get a count would be...

cd to the top level directory...


ls -lR | grep .html | wc -l
