I just tested with .htaccess
<FilesMatch "lzma">
ForceType application/octet-stream

At least on Mac Safari does not attempt to display file anymore and
does not add txt

Still one needs (after downloading) to chmod a+x and change name to lzma f

As long as you do not have any other files but  *lzma* in the
directory you do not need
<FilesMatch "lzma"> </FilesMatch> envelope (which selects files with
the string lzma in their names).

PS It would not work if AllowOverride does not allow ForceType
(on our server httpd.conf says

AllowOverride All)

giving users all the rights to screw up their webpages)




is a php script MIME typed to php (so server treats is this way) but I
can use it with Bulletin Board allowing external images
