A Web server that uses the Content-disposition: attachment HTTP header to force a file download should prompt the user to open or save the file; however, in Internet Explorer 5.5 Service Pack 1 (SP1), the user is prompted to open or save the HTML file instead.
However, this method works fine in Firefox, but I cannot assume all of my online customers will be using Firefox, or an updated version of IE that has implemented MS's fix/workaround to the problem, as indicated in the following KB article.
Is Content-Disposition required for Cold Fusion's Cfcontent to work properly?
Here is the error I am getting now. http://www.esiacademy.com/test.cfm
I guess ultimately that I do not need to force download, and that I can just provide a hyperlink to the download document. If I cannot find a reasonable alternative to the issue descirbed above, that is what I will end up doing.
