insert a link it opens the dialog for you to select the file in the
file system. The only trick is that i had to insert a "file://" before
the file path for notetab to use my default browser to open the file
(that's what i wanted). If the link points to a .txt, it's fine to
open in notetab, but if it's a .doc, .jpg, etc, i need it to use the
appropriate program to open it.
That said, i believe this is the easiest and fastest way. Now i just
need a procedure to ensure the linked files will always be available,
but this is another history.

missing the need to insert "file://" to open external files.
- Beware, though. Using a NoteTab link opens the external file <B>in
NoteTab</B>, regardless of the file extension. Usually that is not the
