1. I recall Ken Ray telling me that a file extension is required on
2. I don't know whether these are platform issues or ISP issues, but:
a. extensions longer than three characters (eg: .html) can loose the
4th & subsequent characters
b. I find file names with high order characters (eg: "Français")
uploaded to my ftp site end up with "_" in place of the character; so
I have to manually replace these characters (eg: "Francais") in
addition to replacing spaces. In this particular case I feel the
downloaded file must retain the original character set; so the file
compressed for download is renamed, not the original file.
