    Default Force Download

    Can anyone tell me how to force a file (in this case a PDF file) to download instead of opening up in the browser. I have tried several things including using ftp in the link instead of http. I have even tried the example from the "Protecting Everything" article I found here. I admit this did seem to force a download for Word documents, but not for PDF&#039s.<BR><BR>If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it if you posted it as well as emailed it to<BR><BR>Thanks
