Following is the code used by me to get a standard file download dialog.

This gives me a standard file save/open dialog with also an option to cancel. If I cancel this dialog choosing cancel the window does not close for IE 6. I have tried target=blank and target=new and in both cases the new window doesn't close in IE6 only. It works fine with IE 7 and firefox. Any idea how this can work.

Thanks for giving attention.
