I believe that this is likely a problem with the mimetypes database 
on your webserver.  It's sending the file as a text/plain when it 
should be using an HTML MIME type.

I don't think that this has anything to do with Mailman or Python, 
but I may be wrong.  At the very least, check out your mimetypes 
database for your webserver and see if there's anything obvious there.
