In order to make the command to open the manual work, I created a

I used defaults.list rather than mimeapps.list because that's what I saw
in xdg-mime. The latter uses mimeapps.list only for KDE 4.
By the way, I initially tried to set the default for application/xml by
using xdg-mime instead of directly creating a defaults.list file. But
that doesn't work, because xdg-mime uses a grep command that fails if
defaults.list doesn't exist. That strikes me as a bug. I would expect
xdg-mime to create the file if it doesn't exist.
