Issue #0 - Download links

You can turn a hyperlink into a download link by adding the download attribute. Instead of navigating to the document, browsers prompt users to save the file to their disc.

<a href="myfile_hash5474n.pdf" download>
Annual Report (666 KB)
</a>

Additionally, you can specify a value for the attribute which will be used as the filename for the downloaded file.

<a href="myfile_hash5474n.pdf" download="report.pdf">
Annual Report (666 KB)
</a>
