Any inconsistencies? Do *all* links work correctly for the former clients,
and do *all* links fail for the latter?

Internet Explorer is notorious in how it ignores the MIME-type set by the
server, and tries to be smart (but fails utterly) by interpreting the URI.
However, I don't think this is the case here. Anyway, do check the MIME-type
Apache sends to the illbehaving clients.

Have to ask: do these latter clients have Word/Office (or OpenOffice)
