      OpenOffice will open Wordperfect files regardless of extension. Quick
      Look will allow you to preview .wpd files as long as you have the
      WordPerfect.qlgenerator (available here) package in /Library/Quicklook.
      However, one cannot open Wordperfect files with other extensions, such
      as .frm.

      In order to make Quick Look recognize the .frm file type, right-click
      OpenOffice.org.app and select Show Package Contents. In the Contents
      folder, double-click the Info.plist file. Add a new child under the
      "Exported Type UTIs" key. Enter the following information (some of the
      keys will be there by default, others you will need to enter manually):

      Conforms to UTIs (array)
      Item 0 (string) - com.corel.wordperfect.doc
      Identifier (string) - com.corel.wordperfect.frm
      Equivalent Types (array)
      public.mime-type (array)
      Item 0 (string) - application/vnd.sun.xml.writer
      public.filename-extension (array)
      Item 0 (string) - frm
      Save Info.plist, open a Terminal window, and type `touch
      /Applications/OpenOffice.org.app/`. Your .frm Wordperfect files should
      now open in Quick Look.

      Implemented on 10.6.2.
