Which defeats the purpose. I'm /NOT/ writing a script to produce an
output file for a web server. I /AM/ producing the output file to

If you are dynamically creating the document, you don't need to write
it to the file system and generate a link in a web page for the user
to click on. You can simply send the document directly to the client
browser *if* you send the proper html content type.

Minor nit:
