Streamed XML not opening in Word...

I wrote a web app that creates a Word XML file on the server. There is a
"Word.Document" processing instruction in the XML to tell it that this XML
should be handled by Word, not IE. But when a href link to the XML file on
the server is clicked, the XML text is still loading directly into IE rather
than launching Word. All other PCs running the same app properly launch Word
when the XML is streamed to their cleint browser via the app.

I've checked th DOC and the XML file types for their edit and open entries
between the machines and they appear to be the same.

Anybody have any ideas on what is causing this behavior on the one machine?
