Re: can anyone suggest a good program for running a web page?

with the mac I can open the file on the server to fix a typo. Seems like
filezilla won't let me do that. Will cyberduck?

about unix and upper case. A friend who owns the hosting service I use told
me that upper case file names won't work, They didn't when we first put the
site up, then it worked when I changed them.

Could this be a setting on the server?

For simple uploading/downloading (either ftp, sftp or fancier) I use
cyberduck. Works like a charm on oodles of servers, all of which are
some flavor of unix. For slightly fancier purposes (i.e. modest site
management and editing) I use Coda.
I don't understand what you could mean about unix not recognizing
uppercase; unix recognizes mixed case—i.e., it distinguishes case.
'david' ain't 'David' and hence (while, not quite hence) david ain't
David. I don't know of a reason why your unix filenames can't all be
all uppercase. (Of course, you'd better *refer* to them that way too.)

It will let my windows machine in with filezilla, but I can't figure out how to use filezilla. It doesn't want to show may any files, though it does say it is uploading == trouble is I don't want it to upload, and I have no idea what it is uploading! also a problem -- the website server is a unix machine that won't recognize upper case file names, and xywrite uses only upper case file names. Can anyone suggest a fix for that? andy t
