Creating a web page

By djdustb ·
I am creating a very basic web page using Frontpage 2000, and publishing using IIS5 on a Windows 2000 box. Some of the pages i have included need to include links to download files to save for use at a later date. I wish for users to be able to download these files and be greeted with a 'open or save to disk' dialog box. However when linking these documents i can only get them to open as HTML pages. most of the files are XML. HELP!!

fp 2k has a plugin that lets one save to disk; also there are alot of freeware out there that does what you really want. generally you could create a hyper link that then goes to a(n) xml-class save on a hdd. good luck, joe

depending on the content-type, the browser automatically translates the contents of the page. if it is an application-zip or exe, it prompts you to save them. if it is some other content that the browser cannot understand, it will prompt you. since most of the files are xml and the browser understands them, it will automatically translate it. if you want the user to save it, zip the xml documents.

hope this helps.
