mp3.com has a system in place that uses .cgi scripts to tally the 
so if you right-click (on Windows/Netscape) on the link to save-as, you
wind up with the script 
rather than the actual *.mp3. If there is a right-click equivalent in Mac
land, I'm assuming the results would be the same. 

On this site, you have to actually double-click the link to 
initiate a download, and even then, sometimes it doesn't work -- the file
becomes corrupt, and
fails to load properly.

Thanks for the interest, BTW . . .
