  See my response to Erik. But prompted by comments, I
  eliminated the function and simply put in these two lines:
  print 'Content-type: application/pdf\n'       ## first line
  print 'Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="my_ad.pdf"' ## second line

  Absence the second line, IE dialogue presumes it to be
  PDF (good). But inclusion of the second *still* does not cause
  "my_ad.pdf" to be included.

  thank you
