I just tried this on a Win2K machine here and had the same results as Dave.
This is a strange thing for Microsoft to have changed.
In the registry under CLASSES_HKEY_ROOT look for the extension of the file
type you want to change. There should be a "Content Type" key (or you can
make one) and set the value as "text/html".
I haven't tried this but it should be equivalent to John's method.

these are the same directions you sent before; I'm going to get the same
result. I assure you, I read your instructions. I _do_ have tools menu in
my Windows Explorer windows; that's where "Folder Options" lives. Then
there's no "Edit" button in the "file types" tab. The available buttons are
"new", "delete", "change", and "advanced". Are you sure you're using Win2K?
I don't mind using regedit to do this, but I don't know where to look in the
Thanks again,
