But, remember, I am talking about the order in which Finder opens  
these files. So, to experiment, you would need to open them, make  
some changes, save, close and open.
But I already did waste some time trying to figure out a workaround  
which is why I was asking whether Apple might have come around to  
doing something sensible for a change.
