First off, congratulations for posting the actual real-world URL, rather
than obfuscating it like so many posters do - it makes checking so much
easier :-)

I tried your link
http://wardsback.dyndns.org/WButils/latest_version/src/org/wardsback/uti
ls/HashUtils.java and the headers look OK. The page renders as plain
formatted text in FF2.0 and IE6. 

Double-check that IE7 really is ignoring the mime-type: clear the cache,
kill the browser and restart - then reload.

IE used to be notorious for disregarding things like mime-types (which,
according to the RFC are supposed to be "authoritative") and using it's
own internal fuzzy-logic (based on extension and patterns in the
content) to decide how to handle resources. However, I had the
impression it was becoming more compliant recently so I'm surprised that
IE7 "doesn't work". There's isn't really anything you can do about it
since you alre already doing the "correct" thing (ie, setting the
mime-type). 

Rgds,
Owen Boyle
