I want to place a link on my website where users can download a Microsoft Word document.

It sounds like it should be easy to do but ... can anyone help?

<a href="path/path/document.doc">this links to word doc </a>

Thanks David - it turned out that I had linked to a corrupt .doc file - I linked to an alternative .doc file and it worked - thanks for your help though.

I would actually zip the .doc file as I have known them to open in a browser such as IE. (did I say browser and IE in the same sentence LOL).

Or give instructions to "Right Click and choose Save As.." , then you don't have to rely on end user knowing about ZIP.
