Probably RepEc can provide the bundle as a zipped files, for instance all the relevant files of a particular routine-.hlp, ado, .do and data can be commprssed into a single file which the users can save and the unzip them in the ado path directories. This can potentially maximise the use of RepEc's excellent software archive.
Best,
Jeffry

	This is at least partly a RePEc and not an IE6 issue.  I also use IE6
	and the "right-click-and-save-as" option works in most circumstances,
	but not from the RePEc download pages.  To download from RePEc you
	tick the file you want and then click the "download" button - the
	right-click option doesn't work.  If the file is a .hlp file, IE6
	will ask whether to save or open, but if it's an .ado, it recognises
	that the file is text and opens it in the browser window.
	
	From this narrow perspective, it would be nice if the RePEc pages
	were set up more conventionally, with right-clickable links. 
	Meanwhile, does anybody out there know how to force IE6 to not treat
	a file ending in .ado as text?
