    they're just sending the same file with different mime types which may
    or may not cause different behavior on the users computer.

    example in a htaccess file:

    AddType application/octet-stream .doc

    the above will most likely (but not necessarily) cause a download dialog
    to appear. you can also use scripting to specify mimes.

    it is foolish to send anything other than the correct mime for the file.

    Yes, it is server-side.
    It is called an HTML anchor.
