File Types Description
Files can be of different types: ascii or binary. Basically, binary files can't be read in notepad. Things like pictures, sound files, movies, programs, and word files are binary. Everything else (e.g. HTML, TXT) is Ascii and can be read just by opening it in a simple viewer. When uploading files, some ftp programs ask what type. If it has an automatic setting use that! Otherwise, pick the appropriate type based on the file type you're uploading!
