Oups, I misunderstood that. Anyway. Now, when you press on the blue  
arrow any rev file is automatically downloaded rather than displayed  
on the screen. Can PC users check this work on IE? I have read  
somewhere that this may not work on IE as it doesn't implement HTTP  
properly.

If you are curious, there are two ways to achieve this. A not so safe  
one, using php:
<http://uk.php.net/header> (see header("Content-Type: application/ 
force-download");)
A safer one, using  .htaccess
<Files *.rev>
ForceType application/octet-stream
</Files>
