From: "Ken Norris" <pixelbird at interisland.net>
Try the form:
[description], *.extension, where description is
optional

answer file "Open Music:" with filter
"MyMusicText,*.txt"

...at any rate, this form requires the actual
extension, and the file 
has to be in the default folder.

answer file "Choose a textfile" with filter
"*.txt"
# select a file from a folder
# put it into ChosenFile                         
                    
#  i.e. path + file
put "file:"&Chosenfile into URLfile
# create format for URL downloading
put URL URLfile into fld "Textdisplay"

they will use come in handy when
i start cross-platforming to Windows.
