What exactly triggers IE and such to believe a given file is text vs.
binary data?

Is it the #!/bin/sh line at the start, or does it see that the first X
lines appear to be ASCII text and go from there?

Can we do something to "fool" it, like:

# [binary data here]
# Above is a line of binary shite to fool IE. Disregard.

Can someone play around with that?
