The problem here is the MIME-type the webserver sends to the browser.
There are several ways to fix this (all solutions assume an Apache

  * Change the default mime type: 
    In your server configuration add/modify:
      DefaultType text/plain
    From now on the server will send 'text/plain' as the default 
    mime type. NOTE: this might have dramatic consequences on the
