[thelist] Save As Button

A site which supports MSIE 6 only needs to implement a feature whereby users
can download CSV files and save them to disk. The boss wants a button on the
page which opens a Windows Save As dialog box allowing users to save their
CVS file.

As far as I know, this is not feasible. My only solutions as this point is
either a form which when submitted, returns to the browser the CVS file. The
browser then of course has the 'choice' to either display that file or ask
the user if he wants to save. I think it will ask him to save. This of
course may depend on individual user settings regarding file types.

Or we could have a link to the CVS file which either works the same way or
the user could right-click and Save Target As.

Anyone have any more intelligent solutions?
