I have my Viewer for text/html set to:

C:OpenURL FILE T:file.html `copy *>NIL: QUIET %s T:html.html`

Of course you need to have openurl.library and the OpenURL command
installed for the above to work. The down side is that a file called
"html.html" remains in T: and is never deleted. If that concerns you
the a short ARexx script that uses the OpenURL command and then
deletes "file.html" might be better.

Also not that "*>NIL" should be changed to ">NIL" for OS3 and possibly MOS.
