Nice reply Brian and spot on. And correct it is a quirk of IE to see a
file with a compressed content, and assume it's a zip. And again I
continue my head scratching until I'm bald, as to why people still want
to use IE with it's archaic code, and ongoing quirks and security flaws.
This when there are superior and up to date Internet browsers out there.

You didn't need to. An .oxt file, like other ODF formats, is itself a
zip archive. What has happened is that the process of downloading the
file has incorrectly modified its .odt extension to .zip - which is
not unusual, in fact. (Don't ask me why or in what circumstances this
occurs, but it does: it appears to be a quirk of Internet Explorer.)
In such cases, you need merely to rename the file back to have its
correct original extension - as you did.
