=== Sending PDF Content ===

Sending PDF content can be tricky due to browser idiosyncrasities.  What we
use at my site is:

* If you provide a filename, e.g., in a Content-Disposition header, you
'''must''' use a .pdf extension.  MSIE will look at filename extensions
instead of the mime-type.

* Set the Content-Length in the header.  MSIE seems to be the most easily

* If you use HTTPS you '''must not''' set the Cache-Control pragma to 'no-cache'.
MSIE is very literal and will discard your content before it can read it!

* You need to play with the Content-Disposition header.  At our site we use
'attachment;filename=...' for Firefox, and 'inline' for all other browsers, but we
have some weird needs.
