Default Linking to Word Documents from a Website

I'm not sure if this is a question for the Word ng or the FrontPage ng. I've
got a web page that links to a few Word .doc files. They open fine, but when
I use the browser's Return button to get back to the web page, I get a
window that says the document has been modified (it hasn't) and then a
log-in window to the server. I can cancel out of everything, but it's still
a pain. Is there anyway to avoid all of that? The url:
http://www.wrcog.org/homefunding.htm (at the bottom of page)
Thanks for your help,
Jenny

I think that's because it's actually opening in the visitor's Word files
and, of course, since it didn't exist on their disk, it's going to ask to
Save it. That's normal operation I'm afraid. IMO you woul d be better off
by zipping them and letting the users unzip them.
