Hmm. Yes, I am being a bit "html centric" here since that's what I'm
working. Maybe a nicer generic solution is to have a standard file
select in the minibuffer with completion when there is no file
name. Just hit enter then to select dired at that directory or "i TAB"
for index.org for example (I use icicles completion here). Not serious
or must have but maybe nice to have at some time.
