Trying to create a shortcut on the home screen to a html file stored on the tablet, it runs fine in the browser
but if I create a shortcut and save to home screen it always errors with application not installed.

The shortcut contents is just the url file:/// etc etc and I would assume it should initially bring up a dialog box asking for the default app to start it...

edit: forgot to mention... the home screen short cuts work fine for websites (http://www.google.com etc, but not for a local html file, file:///index.html etc

any help appreciated


edit again: Just found out, the default android browser will not open files, only those served by a web server...
