One of my web clients wishes to provide for a piece of software to be down-loadable from his website. It would be zip file. How do I insert this download facility into the website?

It should be as simple as a hyperlink, directed to the point on the webserver where the zip file is stored.

Thank you OTT_Buzzardfor the very prompt reply. Does your suggestion provide the dialog box asking whether to save or run?

and provide a hyperlink to it. When a link is clicked the visitor's browser will pop up a dialogue box asking whether the file should be saved or executed.

Many thanks to you both.

Fantastic! I thought it would be much more complicated.
