+Summary: Cannot create 'download' page for inline PDF viewing with IE
+Description of Problem:
+Typically, when you want to transfer a file to the client via code (cuz the
+file is in a db, for example), you create a page that will change the
+response headers and then spit out the file for them to download.
+This works, however something with the response headers make it so IE does
+not display a PDF if the 'Display PDF in browser' is turned on in the
+Acrobat Reader.  The page loads, but is blank.
+This works fine with MS.NET 1.1.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Unzip attached sample
+2. Run using XSP
+3. Install Acrobat Reader 6.0 is installed on a windows machine (if not
+4. Ensure that the 'Display PDF in Browser' flag is turned on in the
+Preferences->Internet section
+3. Browse to the WebForm1.aspx page using IE
+Actual Results:
+A blank page is shown
+Expected Results:
+The PDF is shown in the browser using the acrobat reader plugin.
+How often does this happen? 
+Every time
+Additional Information:
+I am guessing this is due to variations on the response headers?  I don't
+know how to get what headers are being sent.
+This works when the 'Display PDF in browser' is turned off (NOT the
+default), or if you use Firefox.
+This is pretty crucial for us to have our product ported, as we have no way
+to control what the end user has configured on their machine.
