5.0 and later series browsers will recognize that syntax and open a
download dialog box with the specified filename suggested.

Thanks for the tip. Now I don't have to do an additional redirect and I don't even have to open a new window. I still have to pull the file from biglist first and locally host it, however.

BTW, I'm setting mime-types manually based on extension. I have 2 custom mime-types that you can use through your browser to automatically launch specific applications (if it doesn't just look at the extension).

bin files = application/x-atari2600-binary
asm,a,s,h files = text/x-6502-assembly

If you want me to use a different mime-type string on these, let me know.
