is this a OSX application, that came with OS X?

Anyway, check "the detailed files" of a folder which contains an  
"Apercu" document...
Then look at the last item of the appropriate line, that's the correct  
filetype :-)

Example, which shows a Rev document:


Check "files" in the docs for more info about what info this line will  
give you :-)

Unfortunately, the last item is empty with TextEdit docs...

Hope that helps
