I'm using an AJAX (POST) call to a servlet which streams back a Microsoft Word document. I arrives back safely, but I don't know how to spawn a new window (window.open) and populate it with the contents of that Word document. Any thoughts?

I think anything you do in that situation (without an explicit user action) may legitimately be blocked now by more and more browser "popup blockers", so perhaps you want to re-design your solution.

Have the user explicitly click on a link, which then opens a new window (target-"_blank"), displaying the Microsoft .doc content of the response from the servlet.
