Then I'm still not clear why I couldn't use it, since I presume a CSS
file or an HTML file (I tried the W3's HTML validator too) are in the
relevant sense text files. But in both cases the server gave an error
clearly showing it didn't think it had been sent a file at all.

Is there for example some peculiarity to the form in which one should
type the file name?

Yes, as they stand they're like "unactivated" text fields, i.e. the kind
you get with the -tna command line option (I don't know if this remark
is helpful).
