I had kinda dismissed it at first, because I had previously found the
-url info and it hadn't worked in my original test with local files.
Turns out that apparently it only works with full URLs OR full
pathnames, so my original command-line tests failed (because I just
copied a HTML file to the current folder and tried to open it directly).
Thanks for making me have another look at it. I still think it's stupid
that Apple (you know, that company that claims their products "just
work") makes the users jump through all these hoops. But now at least
there's an easy way to do the HTML testing.

Apple FIXED the issue in the new Safari for Windows 3.0.4 (officially
still a beta). Although the syntax buralex digged up (and I'm still
thankful for) still works, Safari no longer needs the -url option to
open local files. This means that you can use the built-in "Open With"
feature in Windows Explorer to open a file in Safari (like you already
could do with IE, Opera and Firefox), without needing to manually create
a context menu entry for the file type.
