Hi,

Sarah is right (as usual :-)
If you want you can use the following too:

Type: EXT
Creator: GZIP

Those are used by the Mac OS X finder.
Another thought: when you set the fileType in a stack (it does not  
matter in a standalone where you are the only master ;-) , it's good  
practice to store the fileType into a local variable before and  
restore it after:

put the fileType into tFileType
set the fileType to <CreatorType>
doSomeSaveStuff
set the fileType to tFileType

Best Regards from Paris,

Eric Chatonet.
