OK, tried downloading with Opera but opening with WinRAR, and it still works.

Tried downloading with IE8 and it comes back corrupted.  Hmm, I wonder if this is a MIME types thing.

looks like it is ziped 2 times, if you unzip the and chanced the outcoming file into, then winrar gets it right.

@Stephen: Seems you're right.  Tried downloading with wget and firefox 3.6.3 and unzip on Linux, and that worked fine.  Downloading with IE8 on WinXP SP3 and extracting with WinZip Pro 11.2 gives "not valid archive". So it's probably IE8.

At least I have a working archive now

@white_panther: Yours work perfectly in the same environment (WinXP SP3, IE8, Winzip 11.2) that Stephen's fails.

I've just found this problem again myself.  Turns out it's because in the server settings .htaccess file, I put the following line:
SetOutputFilter DEFLATE
...which improves download sizes for pages, but seems to confuse some versions of IE and FireFox.  I've commented it out now and my problems appear to have stopped.
