Fail downloading file on Android

How hard is it, to write a PHP script to allow user to download a file? really easy, one would say. Just send the appropriate HTTP header and echo the file content.

add class to link in RTE

It’s might be a simple problem, but yet it’s really hard to find the correct solution. Although the solution is a simple one.

I have been using Mac since 10.5 Leopard, but somehow I just spot this problem today. If you make an archive from Terminal using tar and extract it on other system (Windows or Linux), you’ll find dot underscore (._*) file in the archive. For every file there’ll be one ._ file for it.
