Why does it need to be object based?
A good image viewing program won't care what the file extension is
and interrogate the file header to determine what type of file it
If anything is the blame here it's content manager for completely
bastardizing the files, storing overlays in an undocumented format,
and only allowing 8 meta data fields to fill in data into!

Ah. So having suggested the name is "like B01291AA.BID" is even
more variable that I had inferred from the description. Ah well. If
the PC OS was object-based, it would be moot. Such a strange
concept that a file extension should define the /type/ of object
So I guess double-clicking the file name, even on the PCs with the
CM client installed will have no idea what to do with the .BID
file? And the only way to deal with the managed content is via the
view provided by the CM client.?
