FWIW, on Mac OS X, Safari 3.1.2 treats that test case like you 
describe Opera 9.5 doing it. I can also add Opera Mini 4.1 to the 
same lot. And WebKit on my Symbian powered mobile phone offered to 
download the page an opene it in a text editor.

So perhaps you described the Safari on Windows behaviour?
