What was nifty about the association is that it made life easier for a
couple of classes of Web Braille Users who also use Duxbury: TVIs and
consumers.  While there are TVIs and consumers out there with excellent tech
skills, my experience is that they do not form the majority.  Before the
file association, many would get confused each time they followed a link and
got a page full of ASCII braille.  Some would save the resulting page and
wind up with HTML at the top.  Sure, you could train them to bring up a
context menu on the link or make the file association themselves (which not
all of them understood).  Then 10.5 came out and everyone seemed so happy
that following a Web Braille link gave you a Duxbury (associated) file which
you could save. 

So if you don't mind my asking, how substantial?

10.6

Joanie,

This is true, and deliberate.  I simply forgot to mention it in the beta
notes.

We now have a tool called Embossit -- also, if only informally, in beta.  We
prefer to leave it to have the extension.

Earlier versions of DBT had a setup program that would prompt the user when
there appeared to be a conflict, so the user could choose whether to have
DBT take over .brf file association.  While still possible, this is
substantially more difficult with an MSI installer.

I just noticed that 10.6 is not making itself the default application for
brf files.
