    Whenever I download .css files from my HTML server, it launches StuffIt Expander and tries to do something with it, which of course it cannot do, since the file in question is already in uncompressed format. I do not have this problem with other ftp clients I've used. I've checked Suffix Mapping and .css is set up as Transfer as Text, type TEXT, Creator R*ch (PageSpinner). And there is no entry for Cascading Style Sheet in the Post-Processing list. All I want to have happen is the file to be downloaded -- no post-processing, please! How do I make Fetch stop telling StuffIt Expander to try and do something with these files? Do I add it to the Post-Processing list and then just not put anything in the Application field? (That seems kind of backwards, but I'm grasphing at straws here.)

    You want to disable the UUdecode post-processing action; it sends any BBEdit file to StuffIt Expander (R*ch is actually the creator code for BBEdit).

    That action will be removed from the next release of Fetch.
