html Save As in IE7 produces htm

Wed, March 28, 2007, 08:05 AM under IE7 RSS
A couple of people had trouble recreating my sample gadget and it turns out that the issue was with the HTML file I posted. In IE7 when right clicking on the link and selecting "Save As", the dialog that comes up saves it as HTM. This of course will not work since the manifest file that you download points to an HTML file, not an HTM file. So please rename the file to its full extension after downloading. Note to self: always upload HTM files rather than HTML files to help IE7's "issue".

One reader also got a corrupt manifest XML file somehow and the culprit there was the embedded copyright symbol that I have now removed from the file even though it hadn't caused me any issues…
