Thanks, actually it was just a stupid mistake by me.  I setContentType
before I got the OutputStream instead of after and so it actually 
though it was just a raw OutputStream.  We are using IE ver 5.0 and
it still seems to support the mime protocol(What a MS-ish thing to do...).

That's a good thing to know about the higher versions of IE though.
Thanks again.
