I asked the very same question not a while ago. The show answer is: you 
can't. HTTP server can answer the client with only one response, either 
a file download or a next HTML page. Its a design issue.
You could come up with some javascript that redirects shortly after the 
download has started but personally, I like to keep things as they were 
designed to work.
