     Function org-open-file uses customization variable org-file-apps to
     decide how to open a file.
     Unfortunately it's also making it difficult / impossible to set it up
     so that  org files exported to HTML open in Emacs using EWW ---
     -specifically: the customization interface for org-file-apps claims to
     let you provide a custom lisp form which in principle should let one
     specify browse-url -- (admittedly convoluted ) but even that fails to
     work -- mostly because the documentation is somewhat light with
     respect to showing how one gets ones hands on the matched link.

My personal opinion would be to get rid of org-file-apps.  Opening files
correctly is the job of either Emacs or the OS.


. . . It begins of course with The Internet.  A Net of Peers
