I recently answered a support question on one of the WordPress question and answer sites about forcing pdf links to download in Acrobat or another pdf application, rather than opening in the browser window. I came up with what I thought was a pretty elegant solution, which involved creating a
pdf.php template which set the HTTP headers necessary to force a download, rather than allowing the browser to attempt to render the file.
