In Gecko both types (text/html-sandboxed and text/sandboxed-html) put up 
the helper app prompt.  In Opera they both show an error page with a 
"download default" link.  In Safari both are treated as text/plain.  In 
Chrome they both seem to cause the content to be silently ignored.

The Gecko behavior and possibly the Safari/Opera behavior seems like it 
might be a problem for this approach in the near term, no?

I don't have IE to hand right this second, or anything more interesting 
(amaya, lynx, etc).
