I think he's talking about rigging the Content-Type header so that the 
browser thinks it doesn't know how to display the content, and will 
prompt the user to save the document.  It really has nothing to do with 
DOM at all.

	request.setHeader('content-type', 'application/octet-stream')

In your render method.
