File Associations
« on: May 28, 2005, 10:45:13 pm »
Anyone know where I can convince my C1k to use Opera to open *.htm (and *.html) files instead of Netfront? In Windows of course we'd call this setting the file associations. Opera and Netfront refer to it as Mime types or Plug Ins, but this kind of setting needs to be set at the OS level, not from within the app. I'm sure any of the ROMS have the ability to set this but question is where?

Thanks,

gdog
