Internet Explorer is very dumb about internet file types - it thinks the 
whole world plays the DOS game of identifying files by the end of the 
name ("extensions" or whatever they call it). You can fool it by providing 
a URL that appears to belong to a certain file type. For instance, instead 
of making a link to "imagedisplay.php?id=45", make a link that points to 
"imagedisplay.php/picture.jpg?id=45". PHP will still find your 
imagedisplay.php script, and IE will be happy too.
