launch document problem

If I urlencode it, the launch command fails with "can't open file".  I also
tried sticking "file:" at the front of the filepath and used launch url but
that resulted in a "no association" error.

I'm also finding that if I simply double click on the file in the Finder,
Chrome opens it just fine withe filepath shoing up as the url not the
transgomred string I see when I launch it from within LC.
