Right, I added it there, and also in
org.w3c.tools.resources.indexer.TemplateContainer/helpers/org.w3c.jigadm.editors.ResourcesHelper.p.
That's when I was getting the 'no editor for XXResource'
errors from jigadm.

Well, I can't do that when the resource helper won't appear at all. I guess
I can go back to the jigadm.zip shipped with the distribution, so that some
kind of resource helper appears, and try it there.

What property file(s) would have to change to have jigadm offer the new
filter in the pull-down menu?
