brackets makes Notetab pass it to the browser as part of the the
link name itself, at least when it comes to .XLS (Excel) files.
Adding a "file:" protocol to the path & file name passes it to my
default browser, which doesn't like "<file://foo.xls>" (note
brackets) in its address box.
Angle-bracketed links *do* work on NON-"file:" links, but that's
because the linked files are being opened in Notetab, not some other
program like Excel.
I also don't understand -- why would you want to add Excel binary
file types to Notetab's list of "HTML files"? I did try it to see
if it would make the angle-bracketed linking you describe work
with "file:" links (it didn't), but I removed it because it doesn't
really make sense to me to view color coded binary Excel files
