Can I place a Microsoft Word doc on my website for download? It works when I
test it on my hard drive; but doesn’t work once I FTP it to the website.
The key is to ensure that you are specifying a binary transfer when you send the file up to the server. Then you should be able to have something like <a href=”mysample.doc”>get the Word file</a> and it should work without a hitch.
