    Custom folder view... folder.htt equivalent?

    I want to make one particular folder on a network share appear
    differently. I've got some mileage from specifying a custom icon and
    tooltip text in desktop.ini, but ideally I'd like to display some custom
    text in the Windows XP Explorer task pane or elsewhere equally visible.

    I suppose what I'm trying to do is what you could achieve with
    folder.htt in Windows 98.

    folder.htt still good in XP.

    ....folder customization through hypertext templates (.htt files) has been
    deemphasized in Windows XP and important restrictions have been applied.
