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.
