Thanks for the reply. I'm embarrassed to say I figured it out soon
after I posted the question. Even worse, I found a Vim Tip on the
There remains, however, a minor problem with respect to loading the file
in a new tab vs. the existing tab vs. a new window. I have Firefox
configured to open external links in a new tab. Without an existing
Firefox command switch to control how a given file is loaded, the
existing setting gets used, which in my case would mean a new tab is
opened for every reload/refresh of the html file I'm editing.
That leaves me three options:
a) Hold my breath for the folks at Mozilla to add a switch;
b) Change the way I use Firefox; or
c) Give up on the idea of loading the file from within Vim.
