I got no info found for man mime.types

Are you saying that if I delete the statement for .txt out of the
/usr/local/etc/apache/mime.types file that apache will
download .txt files?

Is there some statement I can add to httpd.conf to over ride
the mime.types file?

To understand the issue, read the man page for mime.types(5), and
look
at /usr/local/etc/apache/mime.types

Text files are meant to be displayed like that. Easiest answer is to
compress them and offer the compressed version for download.
