I have this script in a list field which has file names previously 
fetched using NLST

on mouseup
   put the clicktext into jai
   put "ftp://katir:myPass@our.kauai.server.org/Public/Sheela/New-Not 
Yet Posted/" & jai into tURL
   put tURL ; wait 1 seconds
   get url  tURL
   put it
   wait 1 second
   put the result

end mouseup

"it" is empty and result:

error  550 /Public/Sheela/New-Not Yet 
Posted/9-19-02_Mauritius_Trip_Talks.txt: not a plain file.

now, these files are files that are generated and uploaded by a Rev app 
I created which is in use by someone in Chennai (Madras) India... and 
they definitely *are* plain text files... ??

What am I doing wrong?
