Just the sort of stuff I was looking for. Thanks!

When I tried to use "open -a" to open iCab, it still wanted a filename argument as you said, so I just used "touch /tmp/foo.html" to create an empty document. But then open used the preferred browser to open it, not iCab. But it's a start.

The "openURL" command could make OmniWeb my preferred browser for the scripting stuff, though the ability to filter banners in iCab would keep me using it for everything else probably. (hint hint :-) But I don't seem to have it. I installed OmniWeb fairly recently. In fact, just to be sure, I downloaded it again and did a "find" in the disk image directory it created. Any ideas?

Thanks also for the pointer to osascript. If I can get the openURL command for OmniWeb that's probably the best solution, but it's nice to have other options.

Thanks again for the help!
