See prior message regarding Java servlet redirecting to file URL delivered
by Apache 2.0.47 server.

Folks with tools like the above don't need binary files.  Such folks I
expect can compile the source for themselves.

I've been doing "right click" using "Save Target As..." option which
works correctly with "*.gz" files from Apache Jakarta where I tried
downloading Tomcat 4.1.31 with no problem.

Don't forget "*.tar.gz.sig", "*.tar.bz2.sig" and "*.zip.sig" files work
on CVS Home.  Can you check the difference between them & "*.gz.sig"?

Here's what Microsoft said about IE and MIME types:
