True, I should have been a bit more clear. In general, CFX_ZIP seems like a
darn cool tag. I wasn't advocating _not_ using the tag, just caution. As for
you not seeing the bug, I'm not surprised. This IIS issue I ran into is
slippery to say the best. Every now and then someone will mention an issue
with it on cf-talk (a ColdFusion listserv), but, again, it seems to happen
pretty rarely. (Maybe it's been changed in IIS5? )
