I believe "revGoURL <url>" does what you want. It opens the HTML file 
in the user's default web browser.

As in:

   revGoURL "file:///Hard%20Disk/Desktop%20Folder/Sample%20File.html"

The normal path name doesn't work. To retrieve the URL in the 
required format, I opened the file in the browser and copied the URL 
displayed in the browser.
