Default chmod 744/755 for http

I wanted to know about the file permission for http files ie. /var/www/html/*.html,shtml etc.. as in case of .htaccess we need to provide 755 to that perticular file and same in case of .cgi...rest 755 ..but still all the files in in http root directory having 744 permission...is it fine to give "others" to exec permission for .html file to run on requested browser any security issue ?..

Normally 644 is fine for files, but 755 doesn't do any harm.
