Reading eBooks from a website browser is opening the book as text

I want to be able to go to a website and download ePUB formatted books on an Android phone (Motorola Droid) and have them open in a reader, but the browser keeps opening the file as a text file (the text starts with the ePUB files header string).

Ive tried Aldiko and Kobo, and both open the book as a text file. According to the Aldiko blog, I should be presented with a selection box with the option to open an eBook in Aldiko when I tap a link to an eBook in the browser, but its not happening.

Is there some setting that needs to be set after installing a reader like Aldiko to let Android know that files with an ePUB extension should be sent to the Aldiko app? Is there a site with a clear set of instructions on what to do?

Thanks
