I vaguely remember having done this in the past when I wanted to emulate a web 
page in FrameMaker. From memory, using anchored frames I overlaid the icon 
graphic with a transparent area of the same size and hyperlinked the remote 
file to the transparent area.

If this doesn't make sense, John, I'll dig out some files and try to do a 
forensic drains-up on them.
