I suspect you changed the File Sets preference, which is used for selecting
files in searches, the project view, and a few other things.

You can add 'kid' for 'HTML' mime type in the Files / File Types / Extra
File Types preference it should work (possibly after restart or close/open
file depending on your version of Wing; I can't off-hand remember if
3.1.8 correctly updates already-open files when you change this pref).

Please let me know if that doesn't help.
