Ramon and Dave:

The code to add a link to a downloadable file is:

<a href="filename.doc"> Visible Name to be Clicked On </a>

Note:  .doc could be .exe .zip or whatever your file actually is.

And to Dave:

The simplest possible way to keep track of how many people
download files is to create a separate page for each file to be
downloaded. Then place a simple, (or complex--your choice), hit
counter on that page.

Create a page containing a list and description of the downloads
with links to the page actually having the download link. The
theory here is that no one would go to the page unless they
intended to download the file.

I'm not saying this is the best, but you did say "simple". (Grin)

Best wishes
