Document Icons...or not?

In the Standalone Application Settings, I selected an icon for the "Document 
Icon" area. In my program, I set the fileType to "abcdTEXT" and then save a 
file, where "abcd" stands in for my Apple-registered creator code -- the 
same creator code that shows up in my plist files.

No matter how many things I tweak or settings I adjust, I cannot get my text 
file to adopt the icon that I intended for it.

So I changed the fileType to "abcdABCD" thinking that the text file icon on 
the Mac must override my chosen icon. But this time I just get the blank, 
default Mac document icon.
