    Files on the web have a MIME type (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions). This tells the browser how to treat the file, a list of MIME types can be found here: http://www.webmaster-toolkit.com/mime-types.shtml

    For example lets say you view a JPEG file, the browser will load the file in its browser window. However lets you try and view an executable, your browser will attempt to download the file/.

    It all depends on what type of file you want to put up for download.
