Hi Russ/ All,
        Thanks for the immediate help. That was really helpful. 

However, there is still one query in my mind; as it says that copying
the Mac file to a PC results in the loss of the resoource fork. But we
haven't checked out the file on a PC. We've just checked-in the .htm
file with the correct info through MacCVS client into CVS (running on
Suse Linux) and later checking-out the same file on the same Mac changes
it's Creator / TYPE fields. Is  the PC interface that you specified,
specifically the Windows platform (which in this case does not come in
the picture), or is it any machine other than a MAC machine?

Thanks again for the help.

Maninder Singh

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,
