[mapguide-internals] MIME type for MapGuide packages

Could you please try again; I've changed it to send the vnd MIME type instead:


With a non-ambiguous MIME type, IE is supposed to bypass sniffing altogether, but who knows...  I've tested with a clean IE6 on XP SP3, and IE7 on Vista.

I tested it with the link below in IE8, and it renames it to .zip :(

I think there is a difference in how you use the link.
I pasted it into the adress line.
