Q. I am getting ugly bitstreams in IE, instead of my Word/Excel/otherApp document? Why?

A.

It seems the IE browser likes to cache the content-type for documents such that in a scenario where you may request a file from a protected directory, such as myFile.exe, if you are denied for whatever reason (resulting in HTML 'denied' response), then a subsequent successful authenticated request for the same file from the same session is treated as an HTML response and results in the binary streaming into the page as opposed to eliciting the 'Open/Save' dialog.
This is a bug in the browser and should be reported.
