ie5 associations

Everyone has suggested changing the associations, buct that's not the
issue. I am aware of how to do that. The problem is that despite the
association with Textpad I should still be able to open an XML file in IE
and I can't.

Think of it this way. By going to File->Open in Word, you can open a
WordPerfect document in Word even if WordPerfect is installed on the system
and registered to handle Wordperfect files. Now imagine that when you try
to open a WordPerfect file in Word, it instead launches WordPerfect and
opens the file in WordPerfect.  That's more or less what's happening when I
try to read an XML file in IE5.  The associations should affect what
program is launched when I double-click a file of a particular type. It
should not affect what happens when I specifically ask a particular program
to open a particular file.
