[Rd] Non-webby links on Windows web page

On the Windows download page the second link is "Installation and other instructions" http://cran.cnr.berkeley.edu/bin/windows/base/README.R-3.1.2.  Clicking on this gets me a "download or open as" dialogue rather than a page of text.

I think something like this happened a few years ago, and the problem was the MIME type of the link.

It would be nice to fix.

P.S. I was using http://cran.cnr.berkeley.edu/ and FF 33.1 on Win 7.
