[thelist] telling IE not to open text files

On our intranet we frequently link to live documents using the 'file'
protocol, assuming the doc will open in its native application. Text
files don't, they open in IE. I should know how to stop that, but I'm
coming down with a cold and can't think clearly.

How do I tell IE to launch the default *.txt application?
