Visualforce Export to Excel / IE Bug

There is a very nice article on how to export data to Excel using Visualforce. The only problem is that there is a known issue when using Internet Explorer that prevents it from working correctly.

Here is the workaround and I have asked our support rep to check on the status of the bug.

<apex:page controller="YOURCONTROLLER" contentType="application/" cache="true">
 <apex:pageBlock title="Export Results" >
  <apex:pageBlockTable value="{!results}" var="c">
   <apex:column value="{!c.FirstName}"/>
   <apex:column value="{!c.LastName}"/>
