Capture cancelling of file download dialog?

Is it possible to identify the action of a user cancelling by the user
of file download dialog? (as opposed to something else being captured.
Ideally I'd like to do this for a IE6+/FF v1.5+/Safari v1.2+ base.

[I've a pass through ASP page capturing calls to a download component
that doesn't logs activity and which I can't edit. As my ASP page logs
the calls before download, a cancel by the user means the d/l count is 1
too high. As this is not a big-$ project, if I could detect a cancel and
log a -1 via my pass-through script, that would be great. The user of
this log info has no access to server logs, etc so that avenue isn't
worth suggesting as an alternative).

TIA

Thanks for saving me wasted time trying to attempt this!

Luckily the ambiguity caused by not trapping this event isn't a big
deal.
