To do downloads you just link to what you want to download. For instance if you wanted to download a file called letter.doc you would type <a href="letter.doc">Download The Letter</a> Hope this helps

I'll try and explain it a bit better. Creating links like that to files will automatically start to download them if they are not in a format that the webpage can interprete. This basically means any files with .exe or .doc etc etc extentions that the browser can not read it will download. i.e this would not work for files with the .html or htm extention

what is the actual file your trying to download. I'm not sure what the dmlc is but I think you might be missing off the extention such as .doc or whatever. Also you will need to be in the same directory for the link to work because if you try it when its not it will look for the link in your current directory.
