    How to Insert a Link That Will Download a File

    I am trying to add a link to a .gif that when clicked will open the download window and offer the choice of Open or Save.

    At the moment my link is
    <a href="nice_n_easymap.gif"><span style='mso-bidi-font-size:
    10.0pt'>Course Map</span></a>

    This just opens the file in the browser.

    I'm sure that the answer is very straightforward but I can't find it by searching

    You are going to have to zip it up and link to the zip.

    Why not tell those visitors who don't already know that they can right click the image and use the "save (picture or ???) as" option of their browser to do what you want?

    (That will empower them for "ALL" internet browsing - not merely saving a picture at your site.)
