How do I add a link that a surfer can click onto and have a file automatically download to their desktop? The file I wish to have downloaded is a word document. I asm using Frontpage 98.

Zip up the word document, import it into FP98 and then add the relevant reference to it:

<a href="/path/filename.exe">title</a>

When users click on the url, they are prompted to "save the file to disk" or "open it from the current location".  If you simply add the uncompressed\unzipped word document to FP, then when the url is clicked on, the actual word doc is loaded.

Hope this helps.
