Multiple files download in 1 http request

I need client to be able to download multiple files in 1 http request, without using javascript, just pure html.
I know it can be zipped, but my client doesn't allow that to be implemented. In addition to that, the files also need to be downloaded as separate files (can't be combined to just 1 file).
I believe it would involve setting of the http header from the servlet. Please advise. Thanks.

Do they allow anything? Sounds a bit 'pointy haired' to me. Tell them to get over the 'must happen in a single request' requirement then use JavaScript.
Obviously my feelings are that is an unreasonable request. Obviously you've seen the thread here. I'm not aware of anything you can do with the header that will help you.
