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 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
