Any HTML experts out there?

I'm looking for a way to create a hyperlink to a .txt (or any file type for that matter) that will cause the browser to invoke a download instead of opening the file in a window. Can this be done with HTML, or would some sort of scripting be required?

The link I put in the "Updated RDF's" post in the software forum for the RDF's does just that but I did not do anything special to make that happen.

The problem is that .txt files by default will open in a browser window on most systems. I want a way to force the download so that a user doesn't have to do a right-click and then Save As...

I think I'm pretty good with HTML but I can't think of a way to make that happen.
