I'm developing a web application on a Mac and uploading to a Windows hosted server.
I used to use Filezilla's directory comparison feature to see which files in a directory need to be uploaded to the server. But now, certain files are always shown in red (different).
Worst example: if I upload a brand new file, it is immediately marked as different than itself.
I assume this has something to do with the different ways Windos and Mac OS calculate file sizes - but I only experience this with certain file types: html and text. PHP files (even though they are essentially a text file), binary, images and PDFs all report the correct size.
What is it in html files that gets their size misreported? Should I switch to using modification time as my comparison criteria?
