How can I create a plain text file for .htaccess?
You can do it by sshing in to yourdomain.com and using pico, a user-friendly text editor. All the commands for its use appear at the bottom of the page (^ means press the Control key.) Just change to the directory in which you want to use .htaccess, and type "pico .htaccess" to get started with a blank .htaccess file.

I just used Simpletext, and FTP, seems to work okay.
