    download file

    I have a problem in that on my website I have files that can be downloaded
    and I have used html similar to this example:
    < a href="code.zip">Download now</a>

    In IE this works fine no problems and on my local machine i.e. not over the
    web Netscape also offers to download the file but once I try and use
    Netscape to download from my actual website it seems to open a new html page
    and procedes to display the binary information which comes out as chinese
    characters.

    There must be a simple solution to this but I can't find it can anybody
    help?

    Does this problem appear only in your Netscape version?!
    -> You played with your MIME options in Netscape
    and now Netscape thinks your *.zip isn't a zip...
    Reinstall Netscape to fix it....

    No it's not just my Netscape it's also Opera and Mozllia, basically any
    browser other than IE.

    I've not changed any settings as I specifically installed the various
    browsers to try and ensure no problems cross browser.

    Any other ideas?

    I use an input button with the code as follows

    <INPUT type="button" value=" Get IT Now " onclick="window.open('your.exe')">
