Two-part question here:
1) Not sure if this is possible or not. Perhaps it's even easy, I don't know. Suppose I have a link to a file called "thisisthetext.txt". When a user clicks on the link, I need the browser to open a "Save As" dialog box and NOT read the file in the browser. Unfortunately, changing the file/extension isn't an option for me in this case. It has to stay as is (don't ask why...).
2) This part is bizarre... once you get the browser to open a "Save As" dialog box, is it possible to write a different string to the "File Name" field in the dialog box? I know you're probably thinking "the user can just change it to anything they want", but it's actually not an option in this case.
So, in short, a user clicks on a link to a file called "thisisthetext.txt", a "Save As" dialog box opens up with something like "text123.txt" in the File Name field, and the contents of thisisthetext.txt are stored on the users hard drive as text123.txt.
