Hi

I have written following code in JSP
<a href "..\x.ppt">see Slide</a>

I am using Websphere Studio Application Developer v4.0
The problem is that when i click on this link in JSP, junk comes up on IE.
I have set mime type in web.xml and server-cfg.xml

Please tell me why am i getting this problem.
If any configuration is required then please tell me

Thankz

 Usually the mime types go to the web server's configuration files. Which web server are you using?

 I am not very familiar with WebSphere but I guess you could do it from the WebSphere Administrative Console then. Go through the Server Configuration Editor and Server Instance Editor and set the corresponding settings in the Administrative Console.

  I am not sure exactly how you can do it though. Maybe someone with proper WebSphere knowledge might be able to help you more.
