It may depend on how you do it and what browser you are using. If you use "Save As", there is no link to the server maintained. If you are not using IE, your browser probably downloaded a local copy (again with no link to the server). If you check-out and opt to "work with local copy", then i believe the link is maintained.

If I remember correctly, the multi-line isn't compatible with much of anything outside of SharePoint. Try changing it to a single line of text and increase the char count and see if that works.
