Then both curl and wget should have no problems.

curl download what you tell it to, no matter what the contents is or what the
server claims the Content-Type is. It doesn't check it, and it doesn't care.
I think you need to go back and do this by the book:
1. Read this: http://curl.haxx.se/docs/httpscripting.html
2. figure out what your server does
3. mimic that as closely as possible with your chosen tool
