Please read and
never post a large proprietary graphic attachment to a public mailing
list again! You could have saved us the pain of downloading your graphic
by simply explaining what type of file extension your linked file has. 

As for your assertion that there is "nothing amiss" in the server and
"nothing wrong" in the browser - one of these is clearly wrong or you
would have no problem.

Your problem almost certainly to do with the mime-type or file

- what is the extension of the file on the end of the link?
- what setting do you have for AddType, DefaultType, ForceType or
RemoveType and for TypesConfig? Maybe you could read the docs for the
directives and figure it out for yourself?
