corrupt .htm files?

hey all, i just started using ftpclient but i noticed that when i transfer files onto my domain, the .htm files almost always get corrupt (IE when i edit them in FtpClient, they only display "<" and not my code, and when viewed online, they're a bunch of "?" marks and other random symbols.)

why are my files becoming corrupt when i transfer them? i can later edit them on my domain when they're corrupt, but it's a hassle to keep doing that.

ALSO, .htm vs .html? advantages/disadvantages?

thank you!

First, try binary transfers.
Then ?check encoding? of your pages.

.html is just full name of HyperText Markup Language
.htm was for compatibility with old filesystems with 8.3 filenames (8 chars for name and 3 for extension)

"check encoding"? how do I do this?

also, a few people have told me that when they visit my page all they see is a blank white page. is this maybe because it's an .htm page and not a .html page?

thank you!

Can you give us an address of the pages you are having problem with?
