Fine, thanks a lot.

what I've added to the Info.plist is :
        {    LSItemContentTypes   = ( "com.apple.disk-image-dart" );
            CFBundleTypeRole     = Editor;
            LSHandlerRank        = Alternate;
            CFBundleTypeIconFile = "Dart_file.icns";

AppleScript :
set i to info for (POSIX file
"/Users/yt/dart/tests/web_server_hello_world.dart") as alias

giving :
name extension:"dart",
default application:alias
"SSD:System:Library:CoreServices:DiskImageMounter.app:", kind:"Image disque
type identifier:"com.apple.disk-image-dart"
, ...

then it seems UTI would be "com.apple.disk-image-dart", i suspect something
wrong on the Mac OS X side.. Those text files having nothing to do with
DiskImageMounter ;-)

then, that's OK to me having a blank icon at least.

for the remaining i gave up :)

attached the Dart_file.icns
