a green-colored file name in the /var/named directory

i have a file i created for configuring a dns server in my /var/named directory. The file names all display in black except the one called which displays in the color green. Can anyone tell me what this means? Just in case, I have provided the results of the command ls -la

-drwxr-xr-x 2 named named 4096 Oct 15 18:19 .
drwxr-xr-x 20 root root 4096 Oct 12 23:34 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 named named 2499 Jan 24 2003
-rw-r--r-- 1 named named 472 Oct 15 00:11 named.local
-rw-r--r-- 1 named named 656 Oct 15 00:10 named.rev
-rw-r--r-- 1 named named 908 Oct 15 00:03

That means that your shell is set up to
recognize .com as an executable extension.

Green in terms of ls stands for executable,
but the
-rw-r--r-- 1 named named 908 Oct 15 00:03
quite clearly states that it sin't ;)
