I have some javascript that does a saveas to prompt the user to save an xml file:


This works on my machine:
-windows xp pro

But not on other machines running IE 8 (and God only know what else.).
The problem is that on these other machines, the file save as dialog is opened with the filename looking like this:


Missing the ".xml"

I have verified all the IE settings I can think of that might affect this. ideas?
