Associating applications with filetypes

So, there I was wanting to double-click on a .rtf file and have it automatically open in NeoOffice/J (instead of the default, OS X's Preview, which isn't very good at text files). As that would be a system-wide setting, I spent some time looking in System Preferences - to no avail.

Instead, file type associations can be changed by selecting a file of the requisite type and opening the Get Info dialogue box. (Either click on the icon and type command i , or right-click on the icon and select Get Info.

Under Open with: select the application you wish to associate with this file, and click Change All... to make the setting valid for all files of this type.
