the culprit: IE ignores
Authored by: 128K Mac on Mar 20, '02 03:25:56AM

My thanks too. I've often wondered why I.E. will tack an ampersand or some weird character on the end of a downloaded file name or otherwise garbage it making it mandatory for the user to correct the name and haul it over to Stuffit Expander (or whatever).

Security concerns? Sounds like an excuse for sloppy programming by Microsoft. I really hate to be such a skeptic, especially in view of Micro$loth's latest PR attempts for whatever reasons to improve their "security(less) image."

I wonder if "security reasons" will replace "feature" as a term for a bug in Micro$loth software?

:-)
