I think we have zero'd in on the problem.
I double checked my emails and the attachments open OK in any browser, so It is a problem with the uploading. I have passed this onto the webmaster to sort out waht she is doing wrong.
Thanks for all you help Guys

I've been able to reproduce this issue on a test system and I can tell you exactly what is happening. It's not a format issue, it's an issue with the naming of the files on the server.

Files on www.upriver.org with extension .html are being served with MIME type text/html as would be expected. MIME type tells the browser how to handle the file, in this case to treat it as html.

Regardless of how you have emailed them, your results files on  the server have no file extension and are being served with MIME type text/plain. On IE8, these get rendered as html anyway. On IE9 and Chrome, they are rendered as plain text (which is arguably more correct). This change in IE9 is described at http://msdn.M**rosoft.com/en-gb/library/ie/gg622940%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

Your webpage editor needs to rename the files on the server so they have suffix .html (.htm would almost certainly work too). They will then be served with the correct MIME type and all will be well.

As you might surmise, I deal with this kind of fun for a living although I hadn't come across this particular IE9 change before.

I think the problem is that your files are called (for example) "autumn series 2012" and the problem would be resolved if they were "autumn series 2012.html"

If I am correct, it's nowt to do with Sailwave per se.

In Firefox and chrome I see the same unformatted html (learning something), but the problem you identify gives me no clues as to the solution. Remember I am a computir idiot Confused

OK, so if I go to http://www.upriver.org/ and click results/autumn series (for example) what I see in IE9 is that the right hand frame is unformatted html. It works fine in IE8 and Firefox.

Having traced the flow, I believe the reason is that you don't have a file suffix i.e. your file is  /autumn%20series%202012 but should be (say)   /autumn%20series%202012.html

This seems to be a known change in IE9 e.g. see http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/M**rosoft_Operating_Systems/Windows/Windows_7/Q_27648510.html

A pint of bitter next time I'm in Up River SC please. I used to do the very enjoyable long-distance Merlin open but that doesn't run any more......shame.
