Here is the AbiWord .server file.

You just need to add the magic line:

<oaf_attribute name="nautilus:view_as_name" type="string" _value="VIM 

In your factory definition.

I spotted this in the EOG server file and put it in the AbiWord one and 
hey - presto AbiWord was in Nautilus. If I wasn't in Japan I would 
have fallen off my chair :-)



PS. Since we used the same technique as EOG I think the the problem with
Nautilus must be AbiWord's fault.
