I haven't tested this to be certain, but I believe the 'hardcoding' you are referring to has to do with the document's type and creator tags. I have copied HTML pages from a windows box to my iMac that turn up with the Safari document icon. I believe that is because they had no type and creator, so the OS assigned it to my default browser (Safari). However, I have previous HTML documents in my ~/Sites folder that were created when using IE. When double-clicked, they open in IE, not Safari.

So, stripping the type and creator tags (entire resource fork?) from all local HTML docs might resolve some multi-browser problems.
