Downloading database XML files not as easy as it seems

TOPIC: maybe a bug

PRIORITY: medium
Description:

I tried to download h-node's database file for notebooks from the download page today. I expected to get the standard prompt to either open or save the file to my computer when clicking the appropriate download icon. Instead, it just took me to a page where I could just view the file's content. Selecting the entire page with Ctrl + A did not work and I couldn't find any obvious way to get the data.

Later I obtained the data I wanted with bash:

wget http://h-node.org/download/notebooks/en -O myfile

Can we improve the download page to give a prompt to the user?
