Interesting Mac feature.  Anyhow, from what I have read, it appears
that the info you describe is not by default stored _in_ the file:
"Once a Mac file is copied to the PC, the resource fork, type and
creator information are lost unless the file is encoded with MacBinary
or a similar format (HQX, SIT, etc.) that saves the Mac specific data
with the file. This way the file can exist on a single fork machine
(PC, UNIX) or be telecommunicated and decoded at the other end with
all Mac information intact." --

This would indicate that "TEXT"/"MSIE" is the default application
associated with .html files on that machine.

So the solution would probably be to encode the type/creator info in
the file itself.  I have no  idea how this would affect the
portability of the file (to PC, *NIX etc.).

Hope this helps,
