quotes and I didn't notice. Sorry. It's also possible to use plain
quotes in a script by using the escape character, e.g.
"the code \"WPPC\" represents file type."

worry a little about scripts that are too-powerful, where a user
could select all files in a folder and drop them on this script.
Their creators and types are all changed, including the two files
from another app the user mistakenly put in that folder. Without a
third file of that type as a reference, the user doesn't know what to
change them back to and so can't open them.
