Here is the problem:
TextEdit saves both plain text (.txt) and rich text (.rtf), but not 
SimpleText (Weird thing with Type & Creator codes)
I think that IE is the problem (It adds extra type & creator codes to 
many files)  I recommend using OmniWeb (Free: www.omnigroup.com)

Here is the solution:
Force format fix by pressing Cmd-Shift-T until it changes to a blocky 
monospaced type
Run "File->Save As..." and replace the older file.  This will also cause 
it to open properly in the future.
