Hi
I gave the following in my jsp page

<a href="log.txt"> Click Here </a>

When I click the link "Click Here" the file log.txt is opened in the IE browser itself... But i want it to show the download dialog box with the open save buttons [which we can see while we download attachments in yahoo]

I also tried with Mozilla. But I got the same result as in IE.

Can u plz help ?

Thank You
Waiting for reply.

ramranga Kumar, JavaRanch is a community of people from all over the world, many of who are not native English speakers. While using abbreviations like "u" instead of spelling out "you" is convenient when text messaging your friends on a cell phone or in a chat room, it presents an extra challenge to those that are already struggling with English. Additionally, such shortcuts may confound automated translation tools that patrons of the Ranch may be making use of.

I would like to ask for your help in making the content of JavaRanch a little easier to read for everybody that visits here by not using such abbreviations.

Please read this for more information.

thanks,
