You can block http or you can't block http.
Every page you read is "downloaded" as well, doesnt matter if the file
ends with .html, .php or anything else.

What you can do is to block certain filenames like *.mp3, *.avi, *.* ;)
with your squid.
Please check the docs, I cant remember the settings.

Cheers, Michael
