SharePoint and static html files

I have an older version of RoboHelp which generates a set of help files. Together these files make up an online help system. They are purely static html files. I created a Document Library in SharePoint 2010 and uploaded all of these files into the library. I don't know how to link to these files. When I click on any of the .htm files SharePoint ask to Save it on my local computer.

Is there anyway I can treat these a regular html pages? I'd like to really link to the index.htm and have it open a new browser window but SharePoint is taking over.

Has anyone used RoboHelp generated files before?

Thanks.

Unfortunately, SharePoint 2010 does not support the import of html pages. You cannot add them to a library and then have them open as webpages.

The only thing you can do is to create a page and then paste the html code into it. You can use SharePoint Designer to make this process easier, but it still requires you to manually add the code to every page you create in SharePoint.
