I have an .org file in which I want to insert the source code that generated the web page when is exported to HTML, this is, the .org file itself, but when I do it's changed to the .html file. How can I achieve this?

This is the code of the link:

[[./documentation.org][Download .org source file]]

I found the solution in the org-mode manual: Links in HTML export, I only had to add to my init.el file the following sentence

(setq org-html-link-org-files-as-html nil)
