Hi all,
        if you use Netscape with squid, when you retrieve a FTP file you
must save it, although this file is a text one (have you tried to read the
README files from a FTP server? itīs annoying, you have to save it first
and then open it with a text editor).

As I understand, browsers always treat ftp files as text ones if the
xtension is unknown (or there isn't any). I think is better not to send
any mime type or send text/plain (you always have the browser's option
"Save link as..."), so you can interact with the server (i.e. read the
README files) easily.
