Thank you all for your responses.  Your comments were helpful and
insightful.  The thing is, all the answers suggested I set the MIME type
to application/octet-stream...but none actually explained how to SET the
MIME type to that.  So I have to ask, "How do you set the MIME type of
the document or link to application/octet-stream?"  DO I just add a
"type" property??

<a href="foobar.mp3" type="application/octet-stream">download foobar</a>
That doesn't seem right to me...hopefully you see my complete ignorance
shining through here? ;-P
