I'm not sure if this is the right place for XML editor stuff or not, I
seem to recall it being part of webtools.
I'm using Ganymede, on Fedora Core 9, 64 bit.
I was just trying to edit a file using the XML editor, and of course this
file doesn't end with .xml. The dialog that came up told me to add the
content type for this file, so I did. I added "*.jnlp.in" under xml and I
also added *.jnlp while I was there.
I went back to the file, and tried again. It still wouldn't open, same
exact message comes up. If I rename the file to end with just .jnlp, it
works file and opens up in the XML editor. If I add Test.jnlp.in (the full
name of the file) to the content types, tried again, and it opened right
up. I just cannot have a 'complex' file extension it seems.
So, I guess my question is: is there a way to get this to work?
Alternatively, is there any way to simply turn off content type checking?
I mean, does the XML editor really care what the extension of my file is
so long as it can be parsed as XML? I don't mind having to go to a file
and say "Open with XML editor" each time, if it will actually work.
Thanks a bunch,
