I am interested in the inability to execute the "right-click-and-save-as"
option; as from my previous post, that is what I have to do all the time due
to the #$%^*&#@ firewall.

I am using bog-standard Internet Explorer (V6) without any problems  with
the "right-click-and-save-as" option. Is this a function of browsers or
what?

Good point - my browser behaves the same way.  Unfortunately, there's 
no hyperlink at RePEc that allows a "right-click-and-save-as" option.

Anybody out there have any suggestions on how to download from RePEc 
without having the files open in the browser?
