Know only oold macs. there each file knows its programm, there is no distinction by type. a normal web-server does not tell this special info. but if you do [write %file.r read %file.r] rebol adds this information afaik. so maybe a script to search directories and patch *.r-scripts could help. also rebol has special modes to access mac-forks and should be able to set the start-programm explicitely. but then modern macs should have settings somewhere how to associate mime-types/file-extensions from foreign systems? find and change them..
