I don't know about other browsers, but Netscape/Mozilla make this even
easier with their open-with dialog.  The first time you click on an *.pls
link, you should get an open-with-program or save dialog.  Browse to
/usr/bin/xmms (or wherever your xmms is).  The browser then remembers to
use xmms next time.  This behavior can be edited later in the
Navigator/Application Helper prefs.

Konquerer has a very similar feature, except it doesn't seem to _remember_
your preference.  I just tried to add *.pls to the File Association prefs
in that browser but it didn't stick.  Maybe somebody who uses Konquerer
more can offer a better answer there.
