In Windows what I do is save the file on the desktop when it asks you to 
save it.  Then right-click the file and select "open with" and choose 
"wordpad" to open it with.  Check the box "open with this application 
every time".  Now close it and go back to your browser and click on the 
file.  It should now open up in wordpad each time.  At least that is
the behavior in IE.
