Hosting Themes

I'm trying to host a theme on my web server, but when I click on the link to the .jad file all I see is garbage.



I added the following to my .htaccess file:


AddType text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor jad
AddType application/vnd.rim.cod cod
AddType application/java-archive jar
AddType audio/adpcm adp



Any help would be appreciated.

Somebody who knows for sure will probably jump in, but.... is that .htaccess file in the same folder as your jad and cod files?  I do believe that it has to be.

Yes, it's in every folder that has those files in it.
