I don't recall a web site that provides this information, but if you are looking for the method to set up Nav to handle Stars! files to play by e-mail here it is:


2) for MIME TYPE input: application

3) for MIME SUBTYPE input: stars

4) in the extension box input all Stars! file extension you will be receiving and sending i.e.

xy,r1,m1,m2,m3,m4,...,m14,m16,m16,x1,x2,x3,...,x15,x16 NOTE: input the h? files too if you will be sending and or receiving thoses too.

5) select what Navigator is to do when it finds one of these files: "save to disk" or "Unknown: prompt user".

6) select Ok and you're ready to go.

To cut down on having to type out all the extensions in one string I divide my stars extensions into four MIME SUBTYPE: application/stars for .hst, .xy, and .r1; application/stars-log for .x?; application/stars-player for .m?; and application/stars-history for .h?

I hope this helps.
