IE icons not BBedit (3 posts)

    I just upgraded to OS X and since then, with a registered version 4.0.3 all my txt and html files default to IE icons. Ergo, they do not open BBedit once downloaded. I have to open through BBedit, resave them and overwrite and then I can use them till I upload again.
    What am I missing?
    I swear I looked through all the preferences and cannot find this variable.
    HELP! I am wasting precious time.

    You can fix this in Fetch 4 by following these steps:

    1) Choose "Suffix Mapping..." from the Customize menu.
    2) Scroll down to the .html entry
    3) Select the .html entry and click Change
    4) Change the Creator code from MSIE to R*ch
    5) Change the "Name for this type of file" to BBEdit
    6) Click OK twice to save the change.

    In Fetch 5 the process is simpler:

    1) Choose a .html file in the file list and click Get Info
    2) Set the "Open files like this with:" menu in the Transfer Options pane to BBEdit
