Sorry this is not clear.

What is meant by invoking a ' html ' file ?

Is it that you want to parse the file or crawl a web page that is html ?

Could you please be more specific ? Smilie

Something like this should work (replace MYBROWSER with your preferred one):
Code:
#!/bin/ksh
MYBROWSER=/opt/mozilla/bin/mozilla 
MYFILE=myfile.html
$MYBROWSER $MYFILE &

You will need your DISPLAY environment variable set for the window to appear.
