One possible solution would be for the server to include a 
 content-disposition:  response header; as in
      Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="html40.pdf"

Most browsers will know to use this value of the filename field,
rather then
defaulting to the "filename" component of the request-URI.

(note: rfc2616 notes that there are "security issues" associated with
use of Content-disposition)
