content-type, as name sais, is to suggest a 'type' of the file, should 
browser try to show the file (in case its plaintext/html) or should it 
call a plugin (ms word = "application/msword").

What you want is you want to suggest that 
1. browser saves the file
2. browser use different name than the url one.

for this purpose you got in header option to do "Content-Disposition". 
Here I must warn you that IE expects Content-Disposition handled 
differently than other browsers. Here is what I used to do:

$myfakefilename = readFileName_FromDB();
if (strstr($_SERVER["HTTP_USER_AGENT"], "MSIE"))             // For IE
   header("Content-Disposition: filename=$myfakefilename" . "%20"); 
else                                             // For Other browsers
   header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=$myfakefilename"); 


/apz,   Sometimes you get an almost irresistible urge to go on living.
