I'm working on linking some PC network resources through HTML links and
would like to know the best way to go about referencing these network

What I thought of doing was writing a DOS batch file to neatly access the
resource, but I need some way of getting my Web browser to understand that
the appropriate link is not going to a text document but should execute a
program/batch file instead. At the most basic level, I need to shell out
from my browser to DOS (I'm using Netscape for Windows).

Is this just a fanciful idea that really should be implemented, or is there
anyway to do this sort of thing?

Thanks in advance.
