How to switch to another running app?

I've seen a few postings about how to launch an app from within Rev. If 
I know I have another program running (let's say "Internet Explorer") 
and I want to have IE open a particular HTML file whose path I know, how 
do I do it? Must I call upon AppleScript? I'm running OSX but I'd like 
to make this a platform neutral handler because I expect my app to be 
more popular among those of the Windoze persuasion.

Let me also say that if there was a way that Rev could open and display 
the html as a webpage, I'd gladly have Rev do it all!
