ftp is 'file transfer protocol'. It's older than http, but otherwise sorta similar in that most browsers treat a url beginning with ftp:// much the same as they would http://. If the file is huge, and you have the bandwidth, it's considered more polite to download it & read it locally. -S -- Sylvia Sotomayor Kelen language info can be found at:
