There may be but I have not yet found it.
I have find wget better for this type of thing.
If you have wget installed you can paste the following into your Terminal and hit return.
wget -r -l1 --no-parent -A '*jef' http://www.designsbysick.com/votingresults
It should put two free jef files in a new folder in your home directory.
You can get another free file every hour with:
wget -r -l1 --no-parent -A '*jef' http://www.designsbysick.com/hourly.php
if you paste or type the address of the file into Safari's address bar, then hold the Option/Alt key when you press Enter - it should download.
You can also paste the web address (Command V) directly into the Safari downloads window (make it visible from Safari-Window menu if you don't see it) - or select the text of the link & drag it there.
works here on the same system/safari as yours
the target of a webpage link can similarly be downloaded by holding the Option key as you click it.
Very useful Andy.
I could not find your first hint listed anywhere on my Safari help files but it works on my Safari 5.0.6.
This prompted me to search elsewhere for the missing Safari keyboard shortcuts although I don't think the above is listed.
My Google search:

A very clear alternative page:
Thanks, this is very interesting; however, when I tried to configure it, I was told that I needed to install GnuTLS (GNU Transport Layer Security Library) first. And that in turn also needs Libnettle (cryptographic library). I tried to download GnuTLS, but it requires a userid/password. If I have time later, I'll look into it further, because I would like to be able to use wget.
Thanks! Your first tip worked beautifully . Now I don't have to open Firefox to download these files.
For some reason, the tip of pasting (or dragging) the URL into the Downloads window did not work in this case. It tells me, "The requested URL was not found on this server". But I only need one solution and your first one about using the <Option><Return> works well.

However, I went back and tried it again and it worked. I'm not sure as to why it did not work the first time, though we were having a little network slowdown at that time. So, thanks for both tips. I also forgot to mention, that this was the first that I had heard of being able to copy/paste URLs directly into Safari's download window, and this is a great tip in itself .
