You'll want to add these three key sets (this is based on another
app(let) I'd written). CFBundleTypeIconFile and CFBundleTypeName are
optional. The MIME type, extension, and OSType should match all
values for all supported file formats that you'd reasonably want WP
to be the default for (WPG files are the only things missing, I
think); if you want to use separate icons for each document type,
simply duplicate that dict and have each dict's subkeys only handle
one document type apiece. I stole Kevin's website to use in the
CFBundleIdentifier because com.yahoo.groups isn't very useful, but if
you have your own domain, it should be the first part of the bundle
ID; the second part should be some form of the app name.
CFBundleSignature needs to be valid and unique, and the second 4
characters in the app's PkgInfo file must match.
After getting this all set up, you'll have to update your
LaunchServices database's entries for the app in order to test it
(users downloading the final app won't, thankfully).
John, if this gets mangled by the group, I can send you the .plist
snippets off-list. I posted this here because others in the group
may be interested in doing the same sort of thing with AppleScript
apps they write....
