background-- I'm creating about 200 html pages with info from a CD rom. The CD was created with a Mac- the text
files had the line breaks in them. I opened the text files in Word 97 and saved as html I use Windows95, and Netscape Composer to edit.
I copied over the the folders from the cd to work with and the names were lower case, Initail cap, which is fine.
When I had completed all my work and went to upload using WSFTP, the folders were all upper case. As I browsed thru the folders, I saw that many files had changed case. This shatters my web pages because Unix is case-sensitive so the links will be broken.
The question is how do retain the letter case I see on my Windows machine when I ftp the files? If it's too late this
time, is there a way to prevent this problem in the future? If there is no way to prevent it, then could you just explain what is happening so I can explain to people and sound smart?
