  A little clarification - 
        The instructions that Lois gave below are for PC users running
        From the Helpers screen you must press "Create New type". Then it
        prompts you for the Mime Type and Mime SubType.  For the Mime Type
        enter application. For the Mime Subtype enter x-visio.  
        I did not have to put in any file extensions. I just set the "Launch
        the Application" toggle button and entered the application in the next
        field. It is probably easiest to use the "Browse..." button to find 
        your Visio appliation.

        If you have Internet Explorer.
        From the menu item "View" at the top, select "Options". Then click on
        the tab titled "File Types".
        My browser already had "VISIO 4 Drawing". It has extensions VSD VSS VST
        and VSW. If you do not see VISIO in the list, you can add it with the
        "New Type..." button. In the "Content Type" field enter

        If you have AOL's web browser, I don't think you automatically start
