Sorry about the atrocious formatting before.
This should be more redable:

It is probably just that Windows doesn't recognise the file
type. Just right-click on the link, choose "Save link as..."
or whatever it's called in your browser and save it to disk
somewhere convenient. When you double-click on the file
Windows will ask what application you want to open it in.
You should scroll/browse to Notepad if you don't have a real
text editor. You can get one for free at
<>, in which case you will need a real
monowidth Unicode font with IPA support. The best one comes
with the DejaVu fonts
Choose Format > Font > DejaVu Sans Mono in PSPad and you're
set. BabelMap and BabelPad from
<> are very handy too.
