The tricky thing is getting IE to recognize the MIME type (content type)
correctly. I can't advise on this, as Microsoft's algorithm for guessing the
content type, and apparently ignoring what the HTTP header says, has
bewildered me on many occasions. To get plain text displayed properly, I've
resorted in the past to wrapping it in <HTML> and <PRE> tags.
