Thank you, but this solution doesn't seem to work on Jetspeed, due to the
fact that I'm running JSR-168 Portlets on it. I don't believe they support
changing the response's ContentType.

I wanted to know if there was anything about the Tomcat platform that could
result in a CSV file defaulting to an HTM file, and if there was anything to
do about it.
