The release version of IE5 is *totally* ignoring the content-type of many
files returned via ASP for me (including text/plain) ... I think it is just
broken... for example my XMTP app worked correctly under IE5b2 ... now to my
dismay it is broken under IE5 release see: http://jabr.ne.mediaone.net and
browse the XMTP board.
