Sending Plain Text Via ASP

Sending Plain Text Via ASP

Question:
I wrote simple ASP code that reads a TXT file and sends it to the browser. I change the Response.Header to plain/text. Internet Explorer 4 displays the text file fine but IE 5 does not like it and prompts me to download the ASP file. Why does it do this?

Answer:
The header should be text/plain, and it should be stored in the Response.ContentType property.
