Well, actually... no.  Try it in Netscape or IE.  Both will display the file
inside the browser.  Same thing with a gif, etc.  If the browser understands
the extension of the file, it shows it.

The point of this discussion is that if there is confusion on the matter,
the problem should be addressed.

I know there are solutions to the problem.  Change the server.  But not all
of us have the priviledge to make such a change.  Try to ask the IT division
of a government office to change anything on a server "No... security...".
