 Could you please clarify which point you don't understand ?

 It seams it does, because when I change it I can download the file.
 >  * The ''Finder.app'' will determine `UTF-8 Unicode text` because of the
 `.txt`extension in the filename.
 I do not agree, "file" cmd goes read the meta-data and head of files, the
 extension does play any role here. An example with 1 text and one pdf  :
 $ file file.txt test.pdf
 file.txt: UTF-8 Unicode text
 test.pdf: PDF document, version 1.5
 $ mv file.txt file
 $ mv test.pdf test
 $ file file test
 file: UTF-8 Unicode text
 test: PDF document, version 1.5

 > It might be a server issue if the content is advertised to be compressed
 over the wire but is in fact sent as plain text.

 Note that it works well with other clients like s3cmd, DragonFly, so this
 tend to exclude the "server side" issue, don't you agree ?
