Hi. A user here has asked that I create links to MS Office files that can be
opened directly in the corresponding MS Office application.

I can't see a way to do this without having an FTP server running and using the
ftp: URL in the appropriate anchor tag. Using the http:// URL opens the file in
the browser, as does using the file:// URL.

Do we need to install a dedicated FTP server, or is there some clever way to use
JavaScript to allow users to click on a link and open the file in the
application?

Thanks,

David
