Thank you for the tip. I was not previously aware of this mailcap file but I am looking up info on it.

I haven't tried the calculator only because I don't have windows.

clicking on the link generated by \href{run:/usr/bin/gedit ~/research/trunk/src/wkfl/vlyUpstrOvrlp.sh}{vlyUpstrOvrlp} doesn't do anything at all, even though that file exists.

I haven't tried the calculator but I found it on the internet here: latex-community.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2746 If I use a absolute path such as: \href{run:/usr/bin/gedit ~/Desktop/hg18.chrom.sizes}{hg18.chrom.sizes} then I get the error "No application found for opening file of mimetype application/octet-stream". If I use a relative path such as \href{run:/usr/bin/gedit ../src/wkfl/vlyUpstrOvrlp.sh}{vlyUpstrOvrlp} then i believe it is opening the new file "gedit ../src/wkfl/vlyUpstrOvrlp.sh" located in /usr/bin/ with gedit

if you can run a windows calculator with the following command: \href{run:./calc.exe}{CALCULATOR} why can't you open a file in gedit?

This post is more suited to a comment rather than an answer.

comment Sentence alignment for dual-line bilingual paragraph translation in LaTeX
Is there some way of using xstring to get string length and the largest of the two strings and then \phantom somehow to have both lines take up the same space? I don't know what you would do if one language had more letters but a shorter typeset sentence.

comment Sentence alignment for dual-line bilingual paragraph translation in LaTeX
hmm, interesting. Thank you for the working example +1. I'll have to muck around with this for a bit because, like you said, it seems like problems could arise if (when) one language's sentence is much longer.

Yes I saw that one (tex.stackexchange.com/questions/1641/…) as well. I think the answer by you, @Andrew Stacey, is the starting point here. The answer by @Mikael Vejdemo-Johanss wouldn't work for a muli-line gloss as far as I can tell. Please let me know if that is wrong. Thus I think the question is still unresolved.
