Problem posting EPS files online

Hello all:

I'm trying to make an EPS file available for download on the Web.
I've got the proper instructions posted for right-clicking, etc. for
IE and Netscape, Windows and Mac.

The problem I'm running into is that when you right-click the link and
select "Save Target As. . ." in IE, the file shows up in the "Save As"
window as a PS (PostScript) file, and it shows up at a lower
resolution than the EPS file that I posted.

I can't seem to isolate the problem, but I do know that this doesn't
happen in Netscape. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Ian.

maybe I misunderstand, but isn't EPS a short form of Encapsulated
PostScript?

Yes. I'm not familiar with the differences between the .eps and .ps
file types, but I don't think it matters here.

The problem I'm trying to solve here is that when you try to download
the high-resolution .eps file that's posted to the Web, it comes up as
a .ps file that's at low resolution.

Sorry, but this has nothing whatever to do with authoring HTML for the
WWW. Postscript (eps is a particular kind of postscript) is a
programming language. When you access a postsript file from the
server, you'll get a data stream, that only had meaning when the
client "renders" it (usually in a rendering system such as
Ghostscript).

Ghostscript needs to know what the resolution of the display is, in
order to make any headway. Just what is wrong with your own
arrangements for doing that is unclear, but I must insist that it has
nothing to do with authoring HTML for the WWW. You'll need to get
advice either from a group that deals with postscript issues, or one
that deals with setup of browser plugins for ghostscript. On the
basis of what you posted I don't think I can advise you which would be
best.

good luck

Thanks Alan, that does answer my question sufficiently. I was unaware
that's how PostScript worked. I think we'll put the files up in a
compressed format like .zip, that seems to eliminate all the problems
we've encountered with our test set-ups.

Appreciated,
Ian.
