you are still talking about using altBrowser inside Rev?

In that case you can link to local stack or stack on the server just  
like any html-link
and simply check the link the user clicks inside the altBrowser with:
(No need for mimetypes etc...)

on XBrowser_beforeNavigate URL_clicked
   ##do somthing with URL_clicked
end XBrowser_beforeNavigate

But maybe i did not quite understand what you are after... :-)
