I did not read the documentation, but I have an executable shell  
script netscape in ~/bin which has this contents:

	open -a /Applications/Camino\ 1.0\ int.app "$*"

but it would work, probably even better, with

	open -a "$*"

In theory the latter form should be preferred. Here the system's  
Launching Service should choose the right application for the kind of  
data or file passed as argument(s) to netscape.
