The definition of the 'View Only' permissions level is as follows:

Members of this group can view pages, list items, and documents. If the document has a server-side file handler available, they can only view the document using the server-side file handler.

What is considered to be a server-side file handler in the context of SharePoint? Is this an HTTPHandler? What technology is it based on, how do I write one?

Server-side file handler is something like Excel Web Services, or HTML Viewer, I thought.

I think it mainly refers to ASPX files being executed on the server before returning data rather than downloading the actual ASPX file.
