Opening a New document from a template served by a browser

Is there a way to serve an Office Template document via Internet Explorer so that the client's office application will open a new document based on the template without having to go through the extra step of downloading the template file to a location then double clicking it there?

We have Office templates on our WAN with links to them served up in IE. Upon clicking the link the browser offers Open or Download. If Open is selected the Office template on the server is opened. We have these read only for obvious reasons but it makes for a clumsy user experience.

What I am imaging is a link that runs the client's Office Application using the New option which is normally the default action in Windows folder view.
