Visio HTML

Created diagrams in Visio with hyperlinks (linked to a Visio shape) to external documents (Word, PowerPoint, Excel). Saved the Visio file as webpage. When I click on the hyperlink in the html, the document opens in my browser (Internet Explorer 8). I would like to open the document in it's associated program (word-doc in Word, excel-doc in Excel etc...) instead of in the browser. How could I do this? (It seems that it works like that for e-mails, which open in Outlook). Or alternatively, as a second option, how could I instruct that the hyperlink opens in a new window/tab.
Kindest regards,
