What if you set the filetype to "????HTML" - would that be enough to 
convince it to use the default browser. Even on OS 9, if there is no 
filetype set i.e. set it to empty, would the extension ".html" not be 
enough to force it to use the default browser?

No, I hate it when apps insist on starting something other than my 
chosen browser.
