You can set the Content-disposition header in order to force the browser
to download the file [1].

The header should look like this:

Content-disposition: attachment; filename=file.txt

In Orbit, this code should do the trick:

function send(web)
  web.headers['Content-disposition'] = 'attachment; filename=file.txt'
  web.headers['Content-type'] = 'text/plain'

Notice that you should also set the MIME type, otherwise the browser
thinks that you are sending a webpage.
