failure to launch

I can see the site I want on the menu but when I click on it to access it, the saving window flashes very briefly as it tries to save the file (you can actually see the blue line running across the box, saving)and then the message "unable to launch application, application not found appears."  The document I want is a text document.
According to others there is nothing wrong with the site.  The problem is at my end.  This is the only site that I have a problem with.  What can there possibly be in this "text" file that will not run on my reasonably well equipped machine?
The site is www.turing.toronto.edu/homes/west/cs/hscurriculum
Thank you very much

It's most likely that you have an application associated
with the MIME type "text/plain", but the application doesn't
exist.  You didn't say which browser you use, but I'll assume
it's Netscape, the process should be pretty much the same for
other browsers.  

If it is Netscape, try the following:

Click on "Options" in the Menu Bar at the top of the screen
and go to "General Preferences".  Now, click on the tab
entitled "Helpers".  You should be presented with a list
of MIME types.  Search for an entry entitled "text/plain"
by using the scroll bar to scroll through the list (the entry
will most likely be at the bottom).  Click on this entry.
Below the scroll box there should be a list of options,
click on the one that says "View in Browser" to select it.
Finally, click on "OK" and try to reload the page that
was giving you problems.
