Not sure about IE, but here is a link regarding FF:

I tried this, but there doesn't seem to be any real difference, as  
just writing file: (directly) in the JSPWiki link results in HTML code  
that is practically identical with that produced by the WindowsShare  
explained above (just two instead of three slashes.) The browser  
behavior is identical, too.

Apparently, something else is needed to make the browser launch an  
application when needed (according to file type), which is what I'm  
after here.

Thank you anyway,
